Haha that is always fun. I did the same thing in my old XJ... It just sucks that it smells like bog-water for along time.

At least you had someone with a winch... took me forever to get out.

If you are ever hydro locked don't try to start the motor until you pull the plugs and get all the water out. I made this mistake and bent a connecting rod.

I refuse to do anything that is water or deep mud related... It's just not worth it man.

I have a buddy from a local forum that sunk his 2010 JK and broke a rod... Needles to say, he wasn't happy and neither was his wallet.
