Played around at Charouleau Gap. Started raining right as we were coming out in Catalina(went in and out that way). Went to the step and the Remington stickies in the front were not enough to get up and over it, need some more Remingtons for the rear. Many full throttle attempts were made but to no avail. Also put a small hole in one of the front Remingtons and plugged it. Had a guy break a motor mount and he has a metal fan shroud so we made some aluminum can shims to put between what was left of the motor mount.

The water was about 12-15 feet from the base of the step, so wet tires don't help much either. Others were Brian(Gold 4-runner), Micah(White SAS Tacama), Dan(Red XJ), Jon(Willys), and Ryan(Fullsize Chevy).

the smoke coming off the front tire tells me water probably wasn't the problem

You mean you quit before the gas started boiling? That's just not like you:driving:
