    hey so I did some off roading today with a LOT of mud and puddles. my 96 taco was submerged up past the 32" tires... what fun.
    on the way home (back on roads), however, i noticed a sloshing sound coming from the passenger side back seat area when i accelerate/put it into first. it sounds like the water moves from around the back of the front seat to the back of the cab area, but a friend and i checked and we couldnt find where the water is.

    any suggestions/answers as to where the water is?

    Doors have drain holes in the bottom.......It would burn off/evaporate in the exhaust..........hmm................Is there anything under the seats in the rear? Maybe have a friend ride in the back and try to localize where the water sound is comming from. :confused:

    getting there....
    climb under the truck and see if there are some rubber grommets you can pull out and see if water starts to drain out............and if so...go for a little drive and see if most of it wont drain out.

    She's gone but not forgotten.
    Could it be in the frame rails? I can see there's holes in mine. No clue how you'd get it out if it was.

    Thats what I was thinking, maybe in the frame rails. If its there it will run out eventually, but in Vermont it will freeze pretty soon and stop sloshing around.

    the frame rails have holes in the bottom, and theres no water in them (just some mud)
    im 99% sure its in the body, and somewhere under the cab floor.
