The driver thought there was no obstacle able to defeat the power of his truck. However, he found out one that could in a Kentucky off-road park.
It was an important puddle of water and mud. After checking its depth he guessed that his powerful vehicle would be able to pass without difficulty. He was wrong.
“Last time I attempted this I ended up dead in the water. I tried a slower approach this time, so I wouldn’t suck up a bunch of water and stall the engine again. Either way, I would never have made it thru and I wasn’t even able to winch my way out this one,” the driver wrote in the description of the video.
“This is the first time my 12,000 LB winch has ever been stopped because it was unable to pull any more. If you look close you can see that the front of the jeep was just plowing mud. I checked the water level ahead of time and I was confident that the air box would be out of the water but unfortunately the transmission vent line was not. I ended up with water in the transmission but I was still able to drive it home”.
