    Because I have this much flood water in my backyard, and with only 9" I couldn't even get to the deep part! The ground underneath was still solid so traction wasn't a problem, I just idled through. The fan blade was hitting the water (this sounds horrible) and I don't have a dust sheild on my torque converter so it was throwing water out from under the truck. I have a 3" body lift and the floorboards were level with the water, so you can imagine what all was under water. The tires are 38.5 Hawgs.

    Some spots are probably about 8 feet deep. The most I went in was about 36 inches. This is our "boat" because the main road to our house is flooded, so I didn't want to get too crazy and break it. Walking in water when it's 30 degrees out sucks. :D

    Steve, I live in a low area next to a river, and when it rains a lot the water backs up and floods around our house. It usually only lasts for a few days. It's fun to play in while it's here though! :grin:

    I got to see your flooding in person over the last couple days. I flew back to Granite City to bury my stepdad Thursday and Friday. At least the flooding isn't as bad as it has been in years past. You're just lucky it was rain and not snow :D
    I thought there was a chance I was gonna get stuck there over the weekend when it started with the freezing rain friday night. I was glad to see that tehy only had about 2" of snow. My bro-inlaw said part of I-64 was a parking lot heading towards Scott Air Force base. Here in Delaware we haven't seen any snow yet this year

    Its fun when your out trolling around in your truck, but it really sucks when you have to take apart the hubs and repack the bearings and what not.

    I have the same feeling on water!

    This was a lake in GA... did you guys know sand washes away alot faster in running water :D I got the truck out that day (much later) and it is running now, looking for more trouble!

    Maybe you should consider pontoons. Or at least a life raft. Looks like fun:D
