Glad to hear things are getting fixed. You should definitely look into extending the breather hoses on your axles, transfer case , and transmission to help keep water out, like others have said.

water

Wish I would of seen this before now! You got lucky on this one! The Body Control Module is under the center console also. Being it was running yet and the dash was lit up were all good signs. If they were dead and or the engine would of shut off then you would of had some EXPENSIVE stuff go bad. I would pressure wash out your carpet and let dry or you may get some suspicious smells down the road! I bet when you fried the shifter the neutral safety failed or the indication for the dash died with the shifter. Still if you were in neutral it should have shifted out of low or at least into neutral on the transfer case.

Everything checks out for now, all connectors that were submerged I cleaned and greased so hopefully no bugs down the line.

I just took her mudding/trailing yesterday (plenty of it in Florida) and had a blast.

This guy is a winner, floods his Jeep and over $1k in damage. Gets it back and goes right back out again, this time mudding.

Glad this worked out.
I'm also glad you were able to solve this without any integrity issues.
I was shocked at the number of posts supporting what I would consider fraud or at a very minimum, very low integrity moves. Ripping off the warranty or insurance due to your own negligence costs us all in the long run... no different than those who steal credit card numbers and buy things fraudulently... we all pay.

When you said shifter - did you mean transfer case or transmission shifter?

Why is driving into a puddle that's deeper than you thought any worse than smashing up your front end because you're busy fiddling with the stereo? Insurance covers the latter, which is every bit as negligent on your part.

I was referring the lying to the insurance company about the claim. Not making a claim... Making a claim is part of the standard business practice.

There is a post somewhere of someone who did more damage to their vehicle so that it could be totaled...

I don't remember reading that the OP filed a fraudulent claim with his insurance company. I think he was pretty upfront and explained everything to the dealer, even paying $1k out of his pocket, no?

My post seems to be misinterpreted by more than one. My fault for not being more clear...

The OP did everything great!

I'm referring to many replies here that gave advice on how to get a warranty claim 'without them knowing' or 'hiding the evidence of submersion', and one post (too lazy to find the exact post) that suggested doing more damage to the vehicle to make sure the insurance company totals it. All these suggestions and "advice" make me kinda sick frankly... very dishonest and no different than stealing.

I'm only referring to those suggestions made in this thread... not the OP or how he handled it all. He did it with integrity.

Not to thread-jack, but...+1,000,000 I couldn't agree more.

When people start complaining about their rates going up, part of the problem is fraudulent claims as seen suggested in this thread. Disgusting.

Back to your regularly scheduled thread.

I did have to smile when the OP said he's already been back out wheeling in the mud!

I agree with everyone who said change all your fluids including oil, also make sure you change your transmission fluid. Again I would change Transfer Case, Transmission, Diff, and oil. I have crossed many rivers and have even drowned one of my Jeeps. I ingested 3 cylinders of water, we pulled the 8 spark plugs out cranked her over a few times to flush all the water out of the cylinders, dried of the spark plugs and wires, sprayed some starter fluid in each cylinder, put her all back together and she fired right up (Luckily). I still have her today and still running like a champ. Believe or not the electronics dried out and did not have any problems at all.

Here are the pictures, oh by the way this happened while I was stationed in Iceland and it was 10 degrees out, and I had to get in the water to hook up my tow strap for my buddy to pull me out in his TJ. No AAA there.
