2006 Grand Cherokee Quadra-Drive II HEMI SWAMPED testing snorkles after it floats
This is a fully armored WK with a 4" Superlift, all 4X Guard armor, dual interior snorkles, HEMI Superchips, Controller made just to beat the snot out of. We are testing the watertight integrity of the snorkles at the time. The water is VERY COLD, so cold eventually I could not feel the hitch/wire plug in and my friend had to help me plug it in. I would not have gotten stuck except my Jeep floated and the wheels were not fully on the mud/ground. Since this video,
was filmed the carpets are gone, it has a Rhino interior and 2 500 GPH bilge pumps for 1000 GHP pumping so more than enough to pump water out as it only enteres in through the doors. This also uses the 4XGuard portable cradle. with a WARN M8000 that functioned 100% perfectly after sitting under water for 15 minutes (video is edited). All compjuters have now been sealed, relocated and the only way she will die is a fire-lol. This has been driven in the Delaware River already and I am working on a water crossing propulsion system with prop and flotation so she can cross anywhere as we have a lot of water in our area and this Jeep may end up in Thailand where I stay to wheel and drive around.
Jeep Grand Cherokee getting stuck in the hot tub. (Moab, UT)
Raw and unedited clip of a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee going in and out of Mickey's Hot Tub on Hells Revenge (Moab, UT). It gave me more trouble than I anticipated due to a bad line, and everywhere you look is rock and sky.
Subscribe and stay tuned. I will be posting new video clips each day of my old Grand Cherokee. Join me in remembering the good old days and let this good old Grand live on!
Off Roading in Death Valley - Jeep Grand Cherokee WJ vs Toyota Truck
This documentary is of a trip to Death Valley in my 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a freshly installed IRO long arm 4" lift kit. I talked an experienced "off-roader" friend of mine into teaching me the basics of four wheeling and showing me some of the cool spots that many people don't see when they go to Death Valley.
Special thanks to my friend Mike Todd for letting me eat some of the real food that he brought and cooked, instead of having to survive on Cliff bars and beef jerky like I had planned!
Also thanks to the guys at Iron Rock Off Road for the right advice on all of the upgrades I've made to the Jeep so far...
Project Jeep WJ Long Arm Suspension 4" Lift from IRO Grand Cherokee
This is my new project vehicle, a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee with only 100,000 miles on it.
The goal is to make a reliable daily driver that would also be fairly capable as an off road rig for as cheap as possible. I sold my truck for $5,000 and bought this thing for $4,000 leaving a little room for improvements right out of the gate. I started with the Iron Rock Offroad 4" lift and some rock sliders. Next I bought some Hankook Dynapro M/T tires size 265/75 R16.
This video shows the install of the suspension upgrades and sets up the maiden voyage of the Jeep into the wilds of Death Valley...
Stay tuned for part 2 coming soon of the shakedown trip!
