I am now baffled! Not once, but twice you have taken your car swimming. If it was me, I would make the lexus look good, and buy an old jeep to sink in the pond..

Dowe need to quote the number 1 redneck?:banghead

I am interested in the bilge pump system tho, lol. The water has to puddle in the car before the pumps can pump it out, so I guess you plan on sinking it again? Once the water is in there, a few more inches won't hurt, still have to do the same amount of work to get it dry again. :doh

I hate to say it but if you sunk 6 to 8 inches more than is shown in that picture a 3 inch lift and 33 inch BFGs and a snorkel aren't gonna keep you from getting stuck in a pond. From the looks of that, 33 inch BOGGERS would not have gotten through it... locked up differentials help, but I got a diesel land cruiser (that I wish they made for America!) fully locked front and rear hopelessly buried in a rice field in costa rica.. sometimes it doesn't matter if you've got true power to all 4 wheels or not... if its too wet to get traction, you're only going one direction - DOWN. I'm with the others, keep the Lexus out of the water and get an old cruiser or bronco or jeep or build a swamp buggy or air boat for that kind of stuff.

Nope thats not it. That pic is from yesterday, this was back in January. He ended up having to call bayside yesterday at like 1030pm after several people failed to pull him out.

how many times is this fool going to realise that his little 29" stock tires couldn't navigate his ass through a puddle, let a lone a damn crater!
