    A buddy of mine was shooting some pictures and video at a local closed mine pit, and we decided that it was time to give the truck a test. (Believe it or not, no alcohol was consumed. This decision was made without any impairment)
    So, he grabbed his DV camera, and shot some video of me trying to make it through a couple of mud holes. I took some frame captures while editing the video, and these are some of the better shots.

    Hm. I think I almost need a snorkel, here.

    Looks like fun man. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif I love mud but I cant stand that kind of mud water. I like peanut buttery mud better myself, doesnt get all up in the engine bay and stuff. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I think I prefer this type of mud, too. Seems to be easier to wash off the next day...

    84gmcjimmy: A litte bit. Not too much, though. What you aren't seeing in the pictures is that I hit the first hole with too much speed, and killed the motor. That's when the most of the water hit the motor. There was a fair amount that came up onto the headers through the wheel wells, but that stuff boiled off pretty quickly. Made for a cool steam effect, though.
