I use White Vinegar it leaves no streaks and "Dusters" they have long lasting static properties that repel nasty dust...

No it is the road going down to Swansea, West side of the Inyo Mtns coming down from the Salt tram, not in the park. The road at Mengals Pass not sure it has a name, kinda at the break point for Goler Wash Rd and Warm Springs Rd.

You might damage your top too, poke some holes in it or something.

Funny thing is I actually bashed the top pretty good at VOT last summer when I got pitched into a tree.

That doesn't surprise me at all. Even the gas cans are waxed at OEX.

Don't confuse OEX (Overland Experts) with Expo (Overland Expo). OEX = not waxed jerry cans, but rather military/tactical & industrial/professional off-road training.

Nah. Thats what a properly snorkled up tdi is about. There were several holes she dropped into where the bulkhead vents were leaking badly, ie engine fully submerged. Gear in the bed was wet. To give some context truck has 3 inch lift and was on 33's then so water was 4-5ft deep in places. Jason wasn't along that part of the shoreline and didn't get a picture.

Stock Series 3 and built RR County yes, and sometimes it's just driving out the back field obstacle course to head to the bank.
The LR3, rarely.
