A day out...

So, I read this and other forums regularly, and have been trying to decide what direction to go with my Commander. It is almost one year old, so I think it is time. I really wanted to get SRT-8 Rims and go down with it a bit, but after some nudgin from some friends, I think I will now be looking at a modest lift and some larger tires - nothing major, but something to make me feel more comfortable out in the woods. We had a blast, I will post what I can here.

Here are some of the aftermath pics - I am waiting for my friends to send me the during pics....










I hope all that works!

Always nice seeing a Jeep do what it was built to do!

nice video. I wasnt expecting it to be that deep as i was watching. I actually kind of jumped in my seat as i saw you jeep sink into that hole full of water and muck. Is your jeep have the Trail rated badge? Since Do not have that, and have been told that if you have the badge, you have more better seals and things that help when you are in deep water. i have wanted to go in places like you didnt but have not gone inthat deep yet cause im not sure what it will do to the motor. im sure it would be fine.I have been in some pretty deep water with no problems....just not that deep.... Have you had any issues after going out in that stuff. It looked pretty cool!

I was looking at the pic with the door open and the dirt almost in the door when my just turned 5 year old came up to see what I was doing. First thing he said was "oh man, he should get a carwash". LOL

I guess I do keep my Jeep clean. Looks like you had fun and it was impressive seeing it go through the bog on the video.

Even though mine is Trail rated, I can't even go through a carwash without losing power steering, foglights, and sometimes engine power, so no way I'd risk driving through a bog like that on purpose.
