    avoid deep water like the plague....... if you must dive into it, make sure you not only have a decent snorkel, but find a way to waterproof you distributor and electric system. raise all of your vent tubes on your axles, tranny, etc.... Like I said, aviod this type of deep stuff if you can help it....... mud is cool, water ain't.......
