    What’s the deepest water crossing someone has attempted to cross during peak flow? Would two feet of rapids swipe me off of the crossings? I keep thinking “turn around don’t drowned”. But locking the diffs in four-wheel low I should be able to keep it moving? I guess I can wade across it and if I can get to the other side there won’t be a problem? I do have three crossings on foot too. If I make it that far....

    @4X4Runner,
    He knows a lot about forging depths.
    There are some breathers he told me about t-case & others that need air before the air filter.
    He will answer all your questions.
    Hope I pointed you in the right direction.
    Ryan.

    Never caught up with that turkey. They close the access gate when the water is too high.

    My buddy sinks the a$$ end of his truck in the water every time he puts a boat in. He had to rebuild the rear of the truck including welding on a frame...
