But my question is if you relocate it higher will that even matter if it couple more inch higher with mud/water still splashing and hitting it??? Plus when you relocate the ALtenator do you have to get a longer serpentine belt???

I may have a few pics laying around. Luckily I always have to go first so I usually only have pics of others trucks.


I broke through leading making it fun for everyone else



small ice puddle



typical trails near me



taking a pre runner out for fun - I know the holes




totally frozen count?








what road?

Some play time and some work time take me through water alot. the first is of my '98 taco, I was getting swept downstream pretty good. A friend of mine dropped a newish chevy into a hole at the same spot just last year and actually totalled the truck. Engine stalled out, fried all the electrical..etc. The last couple are from work.
