    or at least I hope I did.Last Earlier in the week I week I was out of town and had my pickup parked up at Hannibal,Mo. Anyway they had to heck of a flash flood and yep my poor ole truck was in the water.Got a phone call about it .anyway they said that it was half way up on the doors.
    Hopefully nothing got hurt .Had to drain all the water and oil out of the rearend. Gonna put oil back in today ,drive it for awhile and see what happens. Wish I could of gotten some pictures of it.Didn't hurt the inside any .Just started getting inside of the cab so seats didn't get wet.So I feel that I was really lucky.Could of been a whole lot worse.

    You might want to check the tranny for water too,John. I would say if it didnt get into the engine,You are very lucky indeed.

    Check the oil in the Tranny and it seems to be ok. Least wise the oil isn't milky looking like the rearend oil was.
    And no it didn't get up to the engine so am hoping for the best.
