Default off roading ooopsies!

with a couple of buddies out one night at a developing neighborhood near by, my stock blazer, 2 stock nissan exterras.
it was a night after a decent rainfall and we were plowing through some puddles and i came up to one, entered, and it was DEEP. i powered my way through it and felt my rear differential spank on the bottom get out with 2in of water in the cab ... on the drive home my rear end was making odd noises and vibrations.
which resulted in the breaking of all 4 spyder AND the ring n pinion gears from hitting my differential.

Ha. You're lucky you didn't find a storm sewer ditch or some other underground utility ditch. That'll eat your whole truck.
