Three Cars Perfect for People Who Are Always in the Water
Do you love the water? I mean, we can’t live without water, but who out there really loves the water? Pools, the ocean, it’ll be summer soon, who plans to spend all their time in the water? Well, we got some good news. There are great choices in automobiles for people always in the water. Ram, Dodge SUVs, and Jeeps. Can you guess which ones and why? Read on.
There are many Ram trucks to pick from when a job needs to get done, but that’s not always the reason people buy trucks, is it? Some people just prefer them. There was once a model made specifically for hunters and fishermen, and wouldn’t you know it was a Ram 1500? This truck is versatile, can offer up to 269 lb-ft of torque with an EcoDiesel V6 engine, and has a maximum towing capacity of 10,620 pounds when properly equipped with the gasoline engine option.
Ram 1500s, and other Ram trucks, have the RamBox cargo management system as an available feature. Illuminated, lockable, durable and drainable, the RamBox can be installed into the side rails of the truck bed and voila – extra cargo space. For those of you who don’t want to put sandy or wet clothes and towels in the cabin of the truck, the RamBox is the perfect place for those items. Plus, it can double as a cooler for those hot sunny days – afterwards, pull the plug and drain it for an easy clean up.
The Dodge Journey is so convenient when it comes to storage space, and we’re just not talking about the 67 cubic feet with the front-fold passenger seat and 60/40 split rear bench. We’re also talking about all the compartments hidden within the vehicle itself. Similar to the RamBox, there is built-in floor storage space in the Journey that can be used as a cooler. Just fill it with ice and your favorite refreshments, and whether on the road or at the beach, you’ll have something cold to drink. Or, just use it as one of the many hidden storage compartments.
Aside from great cargo and storage features, the Journey has plenty of modern tech. Planning a day-long trip to the great outdoors?

Is there anything the Wrangler can’t do? We already know its a Jeep classic, the first ever made during times of war. Trail Rated tough, it’s made to tackle harsh terrain and various off-road driving conditions. Legendary traction, ground clearance, maneuverability, articulation and water fording abilities, the Jeep Wrangler can do it all with its Command-Trac 4×4 system, or Rock-Trac found on the Rubicon model. And yes, we mentioned water fording – take the Jeep through large puddles or even small ponds as long as the depth is less than 30 inches. If you are looking to forge water deeper than 30 inches, you can always make modifications to allow for this, mostly with the air intake system.
What to do after water crossing or mudding? The interior of the Jeep Wrangler can be sprayed down. Yeah, take a hose or even pressure washer (especially if mudding) and wash off the Wrangler with ease. This feature is also helpful for when you got a group of people who just spent the day at the beach trekking in all that sand and sea-water smell. Rinse it off, and it’s good as new.
