    They've got their priorities right straight :D

    Too bad the storm probally put the truck there, lol, and even if they did, I think the water came up to the roofline in many places, so it may not have saved it :(

    If you look, the mirrors appear to be folder in, like they folded them in to drive up between those walls next to the steps.

    The reflections of the truck in the water would be real tough to reproduce that nicely in photoshop, the more I look at it, the more I think that the guy actually put it there himself, lol

    Thats simply awesome :D

    Lots of places only got a few feet of water. Most places didn't get anywhere rooftop level. That is great.

    well maybe this will make you guys wanna get more than 4" of lift :D . probably not haha. even if ya had like 8" and 44s you wouldnt have to worry bout gettin water all in it. but i guess 4" and at least 38s still puts u up a good bit

    I would say that the guy put the truck there to save it. If you look at the hanging plants and the blinds in the neighbors windows that's evidence that the water level never really got much higher than what is there. There would also be some sort of water damage to the sides of the houses. Besides, It's just a damn pic. Who cares if it was chopped or not. :rolleyes:
