That, my friend, is a very subjective question. Meny variables. 6" to a foot, I would think is no problem, but if you are moving very fast, it gets splashed/waved up into places, and it's hard to tell what is gonna get damaged. If it gets too deep, you end up with water trying to get in around axle seals, wheel berrings, u-joints, and.... and....
If it's a 'one time deal', you probly won't hurt much getting in as deep as the bottom of the cab.... but spend much time in it and your gonna be changing all affected fluids. (axles, transfer case, maybe trans, motor.) Do something like the oil/gas well tenders do around here, and cross creeks, muddy roads and such on a daily basis all winter long, it does a job on a truck...
