yea the song was fast, but its my absolute favorite band, yes 4wd just in case, we measured right under 3 feet of water, i noticed taking the water slower keep the engine nearly dry. next weekend we are going to a popular offroad park in the area for more video/pics.

Nice video, looks like fun times. All the water I've found has been really muddy...dipped the front end a bit too deep a couple times and have since gone through a couple serp belts and tensioner pullies. I'm kinda weary of deeper water as well.

this is one a over 100 creek crossings in the area for 4x4's, when we left, a 2004 toyota tacoma pre-runner had just got stuck in the same crossing, but he had someone to pull him out, so we left. this is not a 2wd crossing, we tried to tell him
