Sunroof as a door

about 3 o clock msot of the snow had melted and decided to go down to the lumbertrails and go mudding, about a hour into mudding i ended up submerged and using runroof to get out of bronco. Ended up winching truck out with some snap blocks and comealongs but it was still fun seeing just the roof sticking out of the mud puddle.

Re: Sunroof as a door

Nice!!! Have any pics for us?

There has been a couple of times where I've had to use the sliding rear window to get out of my truck, but that was mainly because there was two feet of water or mud underneath the cab and i prefer to not get wet if i don't have a change of clothes.

You totally submerged it? [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] Man you are going to have to change all your fluids and hope you didnt get dirt in the wrong places. That really doesn't sound like fun to me.

Re: Sunroof as a door
