Last night I was in process or layout the PCRC magazine when I came across these pics from an Australian trail run. After I felt like crying for whoever Ralph is, even though he is smiling, I began to wonder if he were a member here. The run was put on by the Sydney Land Rover Owners Club for NW visitors Pamela and Paul Petroff.

I thought our doors were designed to not let any water in up to the character line?

Maybe bad seals, or he didn't climb out of the window to strap up, but instead opened the door.

PS...I've been there in my Jeeps, and never again will I go into water that deep for fun. Even when you make it out you eff up a ton of other crap...and if your diff vent tubes weren't run up high you have to change the fluid every **** time you do it. Screw that noise.

I also thought the seals on our oil pan and valve covers are not supposed to leak either :lol: .

Impressive but it does make me wonder:

If on air springs then you could have hit a button on the dash and had another two inches clearance to get through.
If you still got stuck then the system ill go into extended mode to try and get you out.
If you were still stuck then the car would have been significantly higher and very probably the BeCM would have been high and dry anyway.

Why do people think coils are so much better if off roading????

I'm pro airsprings but in that case i'm pretty sure that when the BECM get wet, he'll got an hard fault and bumpstops to increase damage.
I really need to make a EAS disable switch for that kind of situation.

Pull the EAS power relay - takes ~3 seconds.
That is exactly why my relax has been removed from its metal clip and is held with velcor at the front edge of the seat trim. I can reach down and give it a quick pull without getting out of the seat, opening the door, playing around with seat trim etc.

Same thing here but that doesn't look to do the relay trick in front of friends, that looks defender, not range rover `)
