Water issues

I am trying desperatly to figure out why everytime i go through somewhat deep water my truck spits and sputters for a good 15 minutes. It also dies in water if the puddle, stream, or river is to long. I have tried my best to water proof everything that i know. It has pretty much forced me to bypass mud and find rocks. I would love to get some advice on fixing this problem. So far i have tried; silicone and mtn dew bottle to the coil, bottle and silicone the distributer cap, sealed off the connection to the fuel pump(thats a whole other story). I do not have a snorkle but it has not always done this. Any suggestions?

I just Drive the things, I don't know what makes em work.
