    I did Burns Canyon Road Trail today.. It is really fun for just driving.. There is a few spots you have to slow down for (besides the corners you have to be careful on).. I was wondering if there is anyway anyone knows of to get around this water crossing?

    No it was fine, that is me crossing it.. Just if I am ever alone and don't wanna cross it I would like that option if it is one.. I don't know how to describe where it is.. Going up to Big bear it is more then half way up the trail after the big flat spot you can drive fast on. You take the next left then about a mile maybe a little more.

    The "pumpkin" is slang for your differential

    So where is my differential intake at? The top of my "pumpkin"? I did read that they intakes will only take in water if you are standing in deep water.. But i have no clue if that is true or not..

    Should I be worried about anything else since I have a stick? I will check and see what comes out of my diff. if it is just oil or is it water..
