Sammi\'s don\'t float

[img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] Thought I was about to go under on this one [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Pulled the plugs, changed the oil (yes I collected the old sludge in a gas can) and we were good to wheel [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Sammi\'s don\'t float

If you leave the doors on, they float for a little while....but then they do sink [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Re: Sammi\'s don\'t float

I see tire tracks on the other side, is that a normal area to be crossing?

Re: Sammi\'s don\'t float

No..not normal area [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] I ended up on wrong side and was trying to cross, right upstream was a shallow area I should have went across. If I hadn't creeped slowly I would have probably gone all the way under..that was a DEEP hole!!

Re: Sammi\'s don\'t float

Just another reason to use the search feature.

I'm sure if you had done a search, you would have found out that Sammy's don't float before testing it out on your rig. [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

Just busting your chops [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Glad to hear everything turned out OK. Looks fun and COLD!

Dont forget your diff and T-case fluids. They get nice and milkshakey with water.
