    For those of you that crossed streams, how water tight is the tacoma (stock)?

    If not water tight at all, how to you mitigate this so that you can have fun driving throught water?

    I didnt time it, but i would say my '99 reg cab lasted 10-15 minutes before i had 2 inches of muddy water on the floor. Water level was probably about 4 inches above the bottom of the door frame.

    ...What Brunes said, "Dont park in it"

    There is a vent hole in the back of the cab... so you'll leak there if it's not blocked up. Also make sure you do the rear diff breather mod for water crossing, don't wanna be suck'n water into the diff.
