The original GM diesel 4X4 trucks had the air intake so low they would have puked in the same depth of water!

Just to be fair, I think it was close to 12" in the deepest spot.

I feel for the guy though as my nephew once water-logged my Yamaha Kodiak because the intake vent for the CVT tranny came loose. Oopsie.

I think its funny that he had to make a two point turn to even get ready to run through the puddle. I think this might have been this dudes first off road experience ever, that turn was not very tight
