See, there's another reason for the big bronco. If they only had the bronco and that there susquatch package they could've drove right through it. Those broncos can do everything a wrangler does but better.

(Sorry, it's late here, I'm laughing at my own jokes)

Most winches will work underwater for a little while. But by the looks of that water a person wouldn't be able to free spool it without getting washed away.

If you had a dash or wireless switch for your winch.. you could power out a bunch of cable and pray it snagged on something imobile. That would be a miracle.... Like a fire hydrant. Maybe stop the jeep from completely washing away.

First time I realized JTs and Wranglers have an emergency rooftop escape hatch.

Are we going to be able to drive electric vehicle underwater if we can hold our breath long enough?
Did you see the ad last week of the electric Wrangler at the bottom of the lake? Fully submersible is coming in the next decade they were saying.

Every winter someone around Clear Lake, Iowa, tests the water resistance of their truck or car. I can't count the number of times vehicles were removed from the lake when the ice cleared enough. I can see it now - hey, let's go ice fishing, we'll take my Jeep - if it goes through I'll just drive it out in the spring.

No it was on the bottom of a lake. That's Knik Glacier and the water from the surface to the bottom is something like 100 feet at the face of the glacier, too deep for your recreational Wrangler submarine trip lol. I remember when that happened one of my buddies had asked me if I'd show him the way to the glacier, he'd never been. The next day that happened and I sent him a bunch of the photos from it. We did not go that weekend lol.

I grew up around Clear Lake and ice fished there a good many times...it was inevitable at least once a year it seemed there was a snowmobile going through the ice...
