Well good thing I extended the vent lines and moved the computer. Kind of sunk it up pretty good today.
Didnt get any pictures or many videos before it happened but I got one video coming out of the creek. It was wet sand and was pretty slick so it wasnt hooking up too good. lol

Was having to much fun to get more pics and vids then we got it sunk up. Mud hole didnt look bad at all but boy was I wrong. Hit it and the right side sunk deep. Started taking on water so got out and hooked up the winch and it started pulling pulled it about a foot and it died. Great. Wouldnt do anything. Figured the motor got water in it or something so pulled one of the bolts out and water poured out for about 10 seconds or so but still would do anything. Got the come along out and between that and trying to drive out we got it moved about 15 feet to the edge and the motor shut off and wouldnt start back. Then the come along fell apart so finally we found some guy that came down with his tractor and we finally got it out and when we got it out it fired right up and ran fine.
It never sucked any water in the intake. Guess it wouldnt start back up in the water cause the exhaust couldnt breath kind of like sticking something over the exhaust and it will shut off.
The water soaked everything on the inside the box I built was even full of water. Going to tear it all out tomorrow and seal up the box with silicone to keep it from happening again and pull the carpet out for some bedliner.
After we finally got it out.
The little hole. Some guy through logs over it and stuff to keep people from going in it again.
Where the water line was in the hole. 51 inches.
This was about 2 hours after we got it unstuck when we stopped to grab a bite to eat it was leaking water out and ran across the parking lot still. Its going to be leaking water for days.
Got back home and took the winch apart and found one of the little ground wires for the solenoid was broke off. Dont know if that was the cause or if I did that taking it off by accident. Fixed that and cleaned the motor out real good and its working fine now.
Also here are the Hella lights I got from Walmart for $20 a set.
Check engine light came on also so I got to check that out. Doesnt want to idle real good now.
