Arka, all these water crossing Jeeps, are they waterproofed for water fording or some of them taking chances?

I believe it is available in Bangalore too, for a stiff price though.

AFAIK I know only 2 JEEP Variants CJV35 & M38 were built for Water fording.

Most of the JEEP (Petrol JEEP being an exception) are good with water up to the lower edge of the headlights(700mm+).

There are some techniques to making a water crossing, so they are not taking any chances.

Regards,

Arka
