Ice Cluttered Water Hole

We were riding with Steve Luccioni when he pointed his '98 XJ toward an ice-cluttered water hole on the Orange Trail, only to find out it was much deeper than it looked. Even with ARBs, the 35-inch Maxxis Bighorns couldn't latch hold of the Indiana goo and he ended up having to be pulled out backwards. Luccioni's XJ is unique in that it has Dana 44s front and rear, a modified NP231, and a reclocked transfer case.
