I've gotten mine (ICE) pretty deep during last year's Midwestern record floods. At one point, the water was definitely right under the doors, but the battery well and the floors stayed dry. Neat! I imagine the EDs are similarly good at staying dry. :)

Side note: If you go through deep water at anything faster than say, 20 mph, be sure to check your side skirts to make sure the force of the water didn't break the molded tabs. I went storm chasing with my 451 in 2016 and had to learn that the hard way.

Funny you should say that, I was dragging the bottom skirt of the rear bumper and the corner fasteners had come undone. All put back together - nothing seriously broken (one broken clip).
