And if you plan on going through deep water again you would be wise to extend the breather hoses up higher.

There are a ton of things that you should do. Check both difs fluid, check the t-case fluid, make sure there is no water in the intake and the air filter is dry. If water got into the engine, then pull all the spark plugs before you try and start it. Turn it over a few times to blow out any water and prevent hydro-lock. There are a million electrical connectors that should be waterproofed before going that deep again.

What transmission do you have and have you checked to confirm that the vent tubes for the axles and transfer case are still solidly connected and their upper tube openings are up where they should be?

Dang I wish WF would make everyone fill out their Profiles so we don't have to ask 20 questions. So what model year do you have? I figured you had the manual transmission but there are 5 different manual transmissions used in Wranglers. What year TJ do you have and what engine?

Water in engine

Over the years we have pulled several cars and pickups out of our local boat launching areas that the people forgot to set the brake when picking up or launching the boats and it rolls down the pad and goes under the water. We drain all fuilds, pull plugs, crank engine over and let it dry, with windows down long enough to dry interior. This was mostly a number of years ago when cars were simple and people didn't have good insurance, any more they just call the insurance company. The vehicles we did work on after going in lake ran fine after drying out.

OOoooh...I know what happened!

When I posted those smilies, I posted them by clicking the smiley...but I bet the forum software edited the capitalization in order to prevent it from posting in all caps?
