Got around to checking all the fluids today and had water and mud in all of them except the transfer case. Guess what I'll be doing today before work. ..

Driving over here to change my fluids? I tried hard as heck to keep water/mud out of my diffs since I filled them literally days before this trip.

Seals could be on their way out, even the smallest pinhole can let h20 in there

If you went through any deep water I would check all your fluids. I also check all my rod ends to make sure they still have grease in them.

Great trip! Great nights, especially Friday night! Best day of wheeling ever! Got stuck in milkshake, bent my tie rod, a bunch of new dents, dings and scratches, and some weird noise coming from (I think) my front driveshaft. Will figure that out next week.

Luckily the guy next to us had one with him for emergency and sold it to me for $20! So thankful. The jeep could have made it home, it was just running a little squirrely

You may have been buying new tires if you tried that depending on how far off it threw your toe alignment.
