something was wining after I went bogging today

I went mudding today with my yj and got stuck in a hole. I put it in 4low and still couldent get out. I was pulled backwards while I matted it in reverse. when I finally got out I heard a loud winning noise which I suspected was from the tranny but could have been from the front axle. I drove a few miles down the road to the nearest gas station where I inspected it for a bit. I couldent see anything wrong so I started it back up and the noise didnt come back. Is this something I should worry about?

Whining noises are always bad... It's hard to tell what it is from the description. Can you give us more details? When accelerating/slowing down, low speeds/high speeds, etc.

You probably just had mud packed into something. Hose down the underside real good tomorrow.
Just getting to work is an adventure.

Usually, the whining I get when I'm jeepn' comes from the passenger seat...
