today we are expeiriencing major flash flooding in my area, luckily I have sustained no injuries or damage to properties, and even luckier, I own a dodge nitro. I built my nitro (and am still building) to be a offroad machine. It had no problem getting around town so I decided it was time to go have some fun. My buddy owns a large plot of land filled with cattails and swampy water. Due to the flooding the water had raised to almost 3 feet. Nitro had no problem getting through this swamp with the extremely loose base and high water. Intake did start to become a problem when I started getting really deep so maybe a snorkel is to come in the future. Nitro for the win!
