Driving through deep water

I heard that there are electronic sensors in the floorboards on the passenegr side of newer tacomas (05 and newer) and that if I were to drive through deep water, then theyd fry and my truck would no longer work. Is there any truth to that?

I personally haven't heard of this, but I wouldn't recommend going through water. It's just not good all around, but I can understand if you're asking for a "just in case" kind of question.
But I would highly recommend not going through water and I would recommend the diff breather mod, like some have mentioned on here. And welcome to TW.

I ran my 94 through water all the time. Never a problem until one night I slipped into some ruts and sank it up to the pass. door handle. Needless to say, the interior was full as well. Turns out the computer for that year (and others) was in the pass. lower kick panel. My truck started back up after a good draining, and it wasn't until the next day on my way to work that it crapped out. All the dealer said they did to it was clean out the computer case and dry it. They had it back to me that day and it was fine for the next few years until I sold it. I did mount the computer in a sealed plastic bag, and I did drive through lakes and ponds after that. With a snorkel.

The best part is when she says " Hope you don't scratch your truck and are you stuck?"

There is an expensive sensor underneath the drivers side seat. It is called a Yaw sensor. By the time the water hits that, you should already be speed dialing your insurance company....
