Do they have to change all the gear box and axle oils before they get to their destination???

They should, unless they have the breathers flex hosed to a high location like tactical military trucks. The water would enter a typical 541KB16 breather mounted to the carrier.

No need unless you stopped and it cooled down and then it will suck water in

Other wise all should be good on a short swim like this

Gotta keep a nice gentle constant speed and should be ok

We used to add remote breathers on trucks growing up.

For trucks that did occasional water crossings we ran the breathers to the top of the firewall

You also need to deal with the intake

For trucks that worked in the swamp we also set them up to pressurize the transmission, transfer case and axles to 5 psi
