    How is that possible, some of you guys don't get a drop, while others get bucketfull... There has to be waterfording technique or waterproofing that is different than others.. [-(

    I haven't done anything
    in fact those pics were taken completely stock
    no skids no lift

    Maybe check your weather stripping if your having problems, something obviously wasn't sealed.

    Well actually I can tell you the problem and it is present on all of yours as well.

    The seal around the door terminates at the bottom of the door, dead center.

    So the gap between the two ends of the seal will allow water to sneak through.

    Everyone I know in the small offroad world I have been exposed to has cursed at DC when seeing this because its just plain stupid of them to do it.

    I have considered re-sealing the door near the top to solve this problem, or even just putting a spot of silicone caulk in the bottom seal but I just never got around to any of it.

    In the liberty's defense though, it was in the hole for like 5 minutes before we could get it out.

    Heres what happened.

    I think we see the reason for that now, standing in the water probably forces it through any crack it can find because of pressure, and while you are moving, even at slower speeds the seals do their job, and block water.

    How did you get stuck anyway, it seems like only one wheel is in the hole. (Aeh)
