Made it further than half of the other guys, but the Hammers won.

Note: Do not cross deep water without the proper gear.

NO snorkel in the next video you could hear the water coming out the exhaust! But the Jeep had a snorkel. A 90 V8 can cross deep water!

These are great videos... If we had that much water here, we'd be Oregon...

Yep! Thatís the water crossing that when I came out everyone (Chris V C, Lisa V C, Ken and Dave M.) had to jump out of the way of the wake that came across the trail.

A day at Paragon $35
Camping $10
Pressure washing your D-90 $10

Watching everyone run for higher ground to get out of the way of your wake, priceless!

That's bad! That D90 should've done with ease.

Mike, do you have an extended axle breather kit?

Yep! It runs up into the engine compartment by the fire wall. I even have a breather for my starter.
