    Well its not much but a town close to mine has a huuge flood zone/low lying area next to the river, there is a motox track in the fields and so dirt roads to get out there flood like crazy in winter/spring. I went out there and tried my luck at some stuff. This was pretty fun, i didnt know how deep it was but it got a lil higher than my bumpers in the deep end w/ 4" lift and 33"s almost stalled out my truck somehow, i think water was jsut geting in my exhaust but i saved it and pulled out. I cant wait till spring until more mud is un-frozen! anyways here the pic my girlfriend took :D

    Might want to check the diffs if you haven't relocated the breather tubes. Lesson learned the hard way. Nice pics. Looks like fun.

    Are you nutty?

    Sure it LOOKS like fun! But what happens when u git stuck? Someone's gotta git out of the nice warm truck and start diggin' in that cold a$$ed wet miserable eFfing slurry of water/ice/mud. Oh well, I guess thats what girlfriends are for!

    Yes you defenitly want to extend them! The higher the better. At least higher than the water you play in. My Nissan had the differntials, trans, and transfer case vented up under the hood. I never had a proublm with water. I dround the moter and still didnt have any water in the differntials.

    Nice Pics
