Yep, that pic wasn't at the deepest areas.

Lusus_Naturae Just to note - check and or extend your axle breathers. Even if you don't plan on needing it later, it can save your behind. I just finished working on one project today and found the rear axle breather is attached to the passenger side rear flare at the back corner. It barely sits above the frame, and would be underwater if I had gone down to the river here to play. Now I have to extend them all, I never thought they would put them so low.

I would totally agree. This water had no current or anything, just standing water. Now, a running/flooded creek bed etc....even a foot deep, heck no!

I thought this was cool

So, Houston floods like crazy. I was there this past Saturday, and the water level was rising big time all through one part of town. There were a bunch of cars stalled out in the middle of the roads from water that was around 2-3 feet hight. This was the first time I had put my Jeep to any "test." I was taking it easy of course, but the Jeep navigated through these waters like no problem whatsoever (stock wheels/tires and no lift). Nothing interesting, just had to share
