LOL I was just waiting to here a big BANG lol.


Looks like a good time though. Surprised to see you made it that far. You hit it with a fair amount of speed for not knowing whats under it lol. Many a truck has fallen due to that. Just a word of caution lol.

Young driver I see. Here's some advise for the future, when your "buddy" bets you can't drive through a water filled ditch of unknown depth, that's when you say "sure, lets go get YOUR truck."

Too bad she didn't take on water and hydro lock. Would have been a good lesson learned.

I don't want to sound like an ***, just trying to shed some light and help you out so you don't F your truck.

When I watched the above video all I could see is the truck getting flooded out and possibly burning out a clutch. All that water is not going to help the brakes or electrical system one bit.

I have no desire to have my truck purposely stuck in a ditch, where it may have to be towed out.

I use my truck to get around town, short road trips, and occasionally hauling stuff. I have no desire to ruin the paint job with mud, and stones. I want my truck to last a very long time...I think they call it "taking care of things."
