We went camping a few years ago with some friends, and a buddy got his 4x4 Suburban stuck when trying to cross a ravine. I found a picture that looks similar to what he went through.



Now, the funny thing is that he killed the engine, pulled the plugs, changed the oil and the thing started up about 24 hours after it was submerged. Now, the carpet was shot and it took some detailing to get back to normal but it still ran tough.

Yeah, just as long as the block doesn't get cracked or whatever, you'd be surprised how much you can come back from ... if you don't have insurance and it's not a daily driver that is.

I went through a similar situation back in the 80's. I didn't fair so well. It killed the engine and sucked water into the engine. It twisted the crank 16 degrees from front to back, bent two rods and spun two rod bearings. It still ran. Had a musty smell inside. Imagine that...

I've never had the urge to turn my burb into a submarine, but they do sell snorkels for those daring few. Couldn't find a source for one on a burb, but maybe you could modify the Hummer version.
