Default Flooded ZJ

Met a guy new to wheeling today, nice guy, unfortunately I think the water fubared his ZJ. Hit the water hard with no intake protection....

Anyway, had to post this clip.

Driver door is ziptied, driver is not long legged. Driver is in 12-18" of water. What do ya do? Dukes of Hazard it. Skip to 0:41 secs. Fail in elegancy...

Good luck T.

What's the deal with the painfully long recovery time? Funny video though - sucks when you learn the hard way what the word "hydro-lock" means.

I was overseeing recovery, and teaching my friend from Brazil about American wheeling. I let him work the controls for an experience.
