one day old and we baptized it with some flash floods

Yesterday, we received 3+" inches of rain in about 30 minutes. The roads, ditches, culverts, streams, retention ponds and creeks quickly fileld and overflowed. We happened to be driving over to REI to get a couple of last minute items for a swiftwater rescue class and we got to see how well the FJ did in deep water. We cross multiple sections of the roads where we went through water up to about 18". We took it slow and steady. Those triple wipers did great and the rear wiper even helped. This is a great litte truck.
