I know my X is only 2wd and I knew it would get stuck, but we had some boys up here from New Orleans who have never been off the hardtop, so I figured since we had another truck there I'd hit the whole and put on a show for the guys, Buddy of mine checked depth with a stick and said it would only come up to the bottom of the body.... Think it might have been a little deeper....








The factory tow hook snapped off...(guy in the pic not me, actually thats me in the back right of the pic lol.)


Just a little bit of mud on the inside...


Pulled the carpets out and pressure washed them and used low pressure water hose to wash floor pans and shopvacced excess water out, and she's good as new =)

In the end we all had a blast and the guys from New Orleans got to see some really pretty views up in the mountains of TN

Oh and the only casualty besides the factory tow hook was the Alternator.... $70 to have mine rebuilt, so not too bad

Eh.. you only start getting worried when mud and water start comming in through the front speakers.

That and it looks like your front bumper could use a little adjustment.

Nah. He meant to drive in there at 30 mph to get that new approach angle on the bumper.

Eh the front bumper was a casualty from trying to pull it out by the front first.... Just had to rock it back and re-tighten the mounting bolts. I didn't actually hit it that fast lol.

Lucky you didn't get the computer wet. I've replaced a few of those in my day. I've decided that x's are most definitely not submersibles.

LOL



















They can be submersible if you keep moving.




When you stop, THEN bad things happen.






I did an ECU lift for example to help improve survivability.

How was it doing the ecu lift? I've thought about doing mine for years and never gotten around to it. Difficult?

Naw, just unbolt it from the hump, and use whatever slack in the harness you have to pick it up.

I used some plastic under it to add a little security blanket as well.

See I was thinking about going just a little bit higher. Like the ceiling.
Lol, I've replaced mine a few times and even though I don't live in the south anymore, and water isn't really a large part of my wheeling now that I'm in Utah, I'd still like to do it.

grin No more water for me.

Its not worth it if there's no water.

laugh

The limiting factor is the harness, there's only so much slack, and....its a thick ass bundle.

The work to extend it/make it reach higher, like to the ceiling, would be more than the work to water proof the truck. :P

It would be easier to pot it in a water proof heat conductive housing at that point.
