I've taken Unimogs through water that comes up to the hood and taken Landrovers through water that is over the hood...but no way would I even remotely consider taking a truck through water that deep.

As can be seen, what actually bought these guys undone was the truck beginning to float and loose traction. If they could have kept the wheels on the "ground", I reckon they would have got through. They were actually doing quite well up to that point. Be interesting to see how much water there was in the cabin though...you wouldn't want it too deep in there.

I've seen a few Landrovers suffer the same problem, start to float, lift the rear wheels off the ground, then you are at the mercy of the current or water flow.

Cheers, Vince

Real fun is a 4 wheel Honda ATV and a river ford that is deeper than it was when you went into the cabin. They float really good but are not very stable. Needless to say I got wet and the bike needed an oil change.
