Remember about a year ago when a Land Rover Defender took on a flooded Araneta Avenue and lost? If you ask us, it’s proof that any car—no matter the reputation—can fall victim to the elements. Our word of advice? If you’re second-guessing the waters in front of you, it’s best to find an alternate route.
But hey, that’s just us. You can always go full Leeroy Jenkins and take some waist-deep flood head on, as this Jeep Wrangler did in Valenzuela the other day. Check it out:
The video, shared by netizen Paul John Morota Solomon on social media, shows the American SUV bravely plowing through floodwaters, eventually making it safely to the other end of the street. So far, the footage has garnered more than 19,000 likes on Facebook.
Why risk it, you ask? Well, how often do you get the chance to show off your off-roader’s wading capabilities to a crowd that big? Just listen to the applause of onlookers once the vehicle emerges triumphant toward the end of the video.
It's good to see that the outcome of this Wrangler’s gung-ho sense of adventure is different from that of the aforementioned Defender. Do you have balls big enough to try this with your SUV? Let us know in the comments.
