I dont know what cheap is to you but a motor swap is normally is pretty expensive.



You say you were at the dunes so I'm guessing that water is salt water? If so you better rip out ALL the interior and wash out it real good along with the rest of the truck. May want to get they water out of the axles,trans,tansfercase and motor asap also.


This might help you out some also.

Damn man that sucks, that was some deep water for your truck, lol. Oh well **** happens. Hope you can get it fixed man, water came out before the oil? lol... not good. Yeah just drain all your fluids, take out your air filter etc etc. maybe possible change your diff fluid?

EDIT: Just read you got it running, Nice, you got lucky bro.

change all your oils, the water pressure doesnt seem like enough, but that water will get into your axles and stuff

we changed all the fluids and ran atf through the motor and it runs and drives just as good as it did before the only thing different is the air bag light stays on other than that its just the same as it was before
