I'll admit it: My kids are grown. I smash puddles in the LR4 for myowndamn enjoyment. I think it's a blast. The massive blinding gusher of water it creates is a feature, not a bug. That said, I try to limit it to "known" puddle locations on my regular routes. Those being spots where I have a good idea of the condition of the underlying road. I don't need to be blowing a tire or bending my suspension on unseen hazards. But sometimes I'll even roll the dice on unmapped puddles if the spirit moves me.
