If you're going to get a large raised chassis, get one that actually has ground clearance. The fuel tanks drop below the axle height making a center pivot point that's liable to hang you up or worse destroy the tanks.

You need something based on an M35 2.5 ton truck or it's ilk. Better off road performance and lower cost at the same time.

Add a proper fording kit and you can actually take it through 'shallow' water.

See also this site for more details on fording.
