aight well the Northeast has gotten some serious rain this weekend so far and on my way home from watchin the Pacquiao fight i went thru a block that was flooded....didn't think it was so deep untill i noticed that the water level kept risin...it got to the pt where it was start to come over the hood (jsut about 4ft)....wheel i kept goin since it was a oneway street and was already past the half way point. i drove almost 75 ft thru that water at prolly about 7-10 mph. the truck did great but i'm wonderin if there's anything i need to check now...the truck has a volant CAI and a PRG 3" lift w/radflo's 2.5 and UCA's....i know the first think on my list is the axle vent mod

If your air filter got wet enough to suck up a significant amount of water, you'd know it.

Did it sound normal and pull consistently through the water? Was it able to idle normally after you got out of the water?

2 wheel or 4 wheel drive

You need to check all your fluids, especially things with seals to external rotating parts.

So diff fluids, transfer case if 4 wheel drive, trans if 2 wheel drive, engine oil. If any fluids are creamy, change them.

They may cream up again, so keep an eye on it.

Front wheel bearings are sealed, as are the rear wheel bearings in the c200 so change those if they go out.

all your breather hoses more than likely have water in them. i would follow nizmut on this.
the water in the engine bay stuff wouldnt be to bad, most of the water you were pushing if you never stopped so the water in your engine bay wouldnt be to high.
