Can I cross water?

Well I did the rear differential breather mod the other day. My question is can I go through water mud? Also the write up for differential breather says it came in through his axle seals?

Stop worrying about it, you'll be fine. And if you are that paranoid change the fluid more to see if there is water in there.

How much water we talking about? I've driven several trucks through water above the hubs without any failure. Any deeper than that, I'd start looking to waterproof things.

Don't hit a body of water at speed, that's asking for it. Keep it slow and steady and you shouldn't have a problem, unless you're trying to cross something that would be better traveled by boat.

Good good, class now define now define the fire tetrahedron. And all of its components.

The fire tetrahedron represents the addition of a component, the chemical chain reaction, to the three already present in the fire triangle. Once a fire has started, the resulting exothermic chain reaction sustains the fire and allows it to continue until or unless at least one of the elements of the fire is blocked. Foam can be used to deny the fire the oxygen it needs. Water can be used to lower the temperature of the fuel below the ignition point or to remove or disperse the fuel. Halon can be used to remove free radicals and create a barrier of inert gas in a direct attack on the chemical reaction responsible for the fire

Do you have 4wd? I ask because one that makes it easier to go through more water and two, you mentioned you did the rear diff breather but you could also raise the front one.

I would also recommend doing the transmission breather, and i think the t-case has a breather.

If you're not going above the doors you don't really need to worry but.... sometimes you go deeper than you wanted to by accident.

Front is raised already.


Water sucking in through the seals is because of the stock breather, the new one needs to be able to breathe -- in and out -- or you'll create a vacuum (when you drastically change the temperature -- cool water crossing, hot axle) in the housing and it'll suck in from wherever if it can.

So you raise and change the breather so it can free flow -- in and out -- and from a clean dry place.

I'd stay below the bottom of the transfer case if you can.
