Sorry man, just looked around but can't find the crank bolt size.

If it makes you feel any better I submarined my WJ today in pond whilst out wheelin.

It was literally up to my ankles inside the Jeep.

Finally got her out with the help of my buddy's CJ7 but busted his bumper doing it.

Shoot gotta get out in the garage and wet vac that thing before I go to bed.

Dang... What's up with everyone having such bad luck? Did you flood your engine or just the cabin?

Sarter first, check battery charge

ok spark plugs out and turned the motor and nothing. just smoke and smells like something is burning. does click. just no turn over. how can I turn the motor bye hand. to see if it will move.
Since you have the plugs out use the starter to turn over. By now, depending on how many times you attempted it, the battery may not be delivering enough juice to the starter to turn it over. Confirm the starter is working properly by pulling it and have it bench tested. The starter was way below your high water mark. Pull the battery and check for a full charge. Once both are done, re-install and without the plugs turn it over and look for water. By now the oil should have been changed and look for water in the oil which may look milky. After you are reasonably sure no more water is in the cylinder, replace the plugs and fire it up. Cross your fingers first. Let it run a few minutes and then change the oil again. If it works remember it is after all, a land vehicle and not a amphibious boat. Happy turkey day! Chief.

Did ya fill the gas tank with water ? I did years ago in one of my CJ's I was in a river using my Jeep has a diving platform and I went in the river with a 1/4 of a tank of gas and pulled out with 3/4 of a tank. Water is not always a good thing.

I always try to go out with a wrangler, and let them go in front of me... that way I can judge. if I don't have a wrangler, I get out and walk, and if need be, use a stick to test it.

Dude. You did $6500 worth of damage to the vehicle and you are going back out with it? Good luck getting insurance to pay for it if you do it again. ;)

This almost happened to me, I had some water coming over the hood! Luckly it was only for a second and I had enough momentum to get me through the pond. It almost died but didn't after I got it out of the water.

Insurance has you flagged now and they won't cover any damage you do off road. Count on that.

I have nothing against going off road but it seems to me doing it with a new vehicle like this just doesn't make sense. Go buy a $500 beater and take that off road.
