I'm guessing that you went flying into the water? I don't see any other way you could have locked it.
Do you have the OE intake?

Guess you learned that it isn't that "cool" to drive fast through water and make a big splash.
Looks like you tried to pull it out using the light bar too. That sucks.
Did you try pulling the filter and plugs and cranking it over at all or is it toast?

ya for real ill just stick to mud not water puddles haha ya its running like a champ now just had to pull the plugs replace the air filter crank it a couple times and change the oil cause it was the color of my truck when i drained it :) the light bar was the only thing we could get to with out swimming in the water because i toke the tow hooks off for the light bar and body lift but it just bent the screws in the bar so as long as i can get the screws out it should be and easy fix fun times just not worth the total amount of around 600 dollars from tickets and repairs

Remember kiddies, water does not compress nor does it ignite.

If you haven't done anything to them, nor plan to, expect to hear some howling within a month or two.

No, it's a valid point. Fact is, it's illegal wheeling, and all it takes is some green, tofu eating, prius driving treehugger to submit that and everything gets shut down. As far as I'm concerned, be a dick to the people that wheel illegally, maybe then they'll learn from it, or just give up wheeling cause they want nothing to do with it. Sorry, my patience for illegal wheeling, trashing the trails, etc has really diminished and it's only getting worse.


So, with that, Stone way to put it to em... the OP, sorry bout your loss, but next time don't cut fences or trespass... find a solid, legal public trail and have fun.

Oh yeah definitely flush those axles and everything else. The vent hoses for the transmission and transfer case are not very high.

i kinda have to agree with stone....even though he was kind of a dick about it,
give the liberal douchebags just a hint of illegal activity and they shut everything down.
prove them wrong by doing stuff right and they won't have anything to B**** about.

i'm working on a way to make my next truck run on panda blood....
