is it water tight

There were three men in the pub one evening, they had all in the last month bought a new 4x4. One man had a Toyota, one a Mitsubishi and the other a Land Rover. Whilst discussing how much better each mans new 4x4 was than the others they stumbled on the subject of how watertight each was. After ten minutes of bickering the Mitsubishi owner said there was just one way to settle this, "Each man must put a cat in his car overnight, if the cat were dead the next morning then the car is watertight."

So, the next evening the guys met up in the pub to discuss their results. First, the Mitsubishi man says "Yep, dead as!", the same went for the Toyota. Both these men looked at the Landy owner and said, "Well? What happened?".

He looked sheepishly at his feet with his hands in his pockets and muttered, "It... got out.

3rd low and BOOT IT

Funny you should bring this up, my truck was outside last night during Hurricane Humberto, and this morning when I check it out it was almost dry. (by rover standards that is) Most of the time it is parked in a nice big dry warehouse so I really have not had a full on opportunity to see if it leaks since putting it together. Over all (on rover standards) I would have to give it an A. No bad considering we had over 10 inches of rain in just a few hours.

If it was a different vehicle I would be pissed off.

no need to be water tight as long as it drains well...

Wonder if it was a diesel..
Land Rovers are by far the best looking 4x4 on the back of a flatbed...
