First of all, I´m pretty sure that the vents of the axles are in the firewall, But beware of the TRANNY, because it has no vent line, I drove under 5 foots of water and the only thing that had water in was my Tranny, so try to waterproof your tranny and transfer.
Actually still have carpet, just left the doors off and it sitting in Reno for a few days. Amazing what heat and dry will do for ya. It really didn't suck at all, didn't get stuck, just drove through, was fun. Knew what to expect but the rest of the trail was tight and difficult so I wanted to have the doors off for that.
