River Diving with the Ranger

This was taken last fall going up through a river near Dundalk. On my pass back through it my transfercase disengaged 4wd on me and I almost lost her lol

That's bad ***. Do you have a snorkel? Did you extend all of your breather lines?

nope, only thing I dad was prop my intake up so it sat right up against the hood. It was successful risk! I don't suggest anyone doing it unless they do run a snorkel though.

When I did this i was a complete rookie to the Offroad scene and had no idea about the risks I was taking.

You should check your diff fluid. It's probably full of water.

Nice.

My breather hoses are six million and three inches long, just in case I have the urge, or like it is around here we get a huge storm and everything is flooded.

Wheel bearings sure hate that water though.

I don't think he is on any anymore. He doesn't have a build thread here either. What are you wanting to know?

Most questions you have could be answered or found in the project logs thread. His swap wasn't anything crazy. As far as the wrap that might not be answered.
