I wouldn't try it on the river like that, but LMTV should be able to ford water far higher than this. It is a diesel engine, as long as the air take is higher than the water. ;)

PS: SS prevents the link show up

Looks like a good time. I can't say I'm ready to do that.... But I would, if the traffic was bad and I needed to get that crate of monkeys delivered.

sounds like the boaters were Russian....... truck folk do things like this there much more often than rest of world out of necessity. Judging by the front suspension bounce at the cab in the video.... doubt it was a flooded "road"........ though possibly a seasonally flooded "service road"? but looks mighty wide for any form of road.

Most trucks can easily handle that. One could easily fab up a pressurized fording system if they were worried of water penetration of steering, crankcase,etc like done on the usmc trucks

Can be made up using common pipe fittings from home depot. Everything is sent to one central fitting section and receives air from the pressure protection side of the system

How much positive pressure should put in?
