  2. Hey I just found your site and I gotta say that I love the articles. Got a question… you said that you had some standing water and goo inside your FJ during this trip. I just came back from a short 4 wheel trip and had about 6 inches of muddy water sitting inside my FJ for about 5 minutes. I was stuck in a mud pit and wasn’t able to get unstuck in time before water started seeping in. I’m just wondering if you experienced any damage to any electrical wiring or if you think I should pull up the floor to let it air out. Would it be worth pulling out the seats? Thanks for any input.

  3. Roman,

    Thanks much for the compliments. The water and mud accumulation in my case, was the result of layers upon layers of dust and a heavy overnight rain. It was a pain to clean out but other than that, I haven’t noticed any side-affects since the incident occurred. A partially submerged vehicle is probably another story entirely. I guess it depends on how deep and for how long. It certainly can’t hurt to pull up the floor mat and padding since this will most definitely trap moisture that can cause long-term damage. I’d say if you haven’t noticed any significant issues thus far, you’re probably okay. But it never hurts to go that extra mile to ensure your FJ stays fit and trim.
