Transfer case!!!!

I went offroading. I threaded really deep water. Can water enter my transfer case and tranny or are they water tight. Did my diffs last month and they had water in them..?

None of them are water tight. Your axles, tranny, and t-case all have breather tubes. Manuals are better about keeping water out than autos. It's always a good idea to change your fluid after deep or long water crossings.

4x4 -101, you should wait for your vehicle to cool down before performing a water crossing. If you go in hot, the air in your axles, etc.. will cool down and compress. If there is water at the breather tubes there is a posibility it will suck in water.
