Personally, I'd just stop driving in that deep of water and find other offroad things to do with my Jeep.
I agree here. I like to use my Jeep as a land vehicle and stay clear of the deep water. I avoid mud and deep water but that is just me.

Jerry Bransford Your transmission has a vent hole on top, it sounds like you drove it in water that was deep enough that the transmission ingested water. Drain and refill it immediately with fresh GL-4 75W-90 gear lube like Redline MT-90 or Royal Purple Synchromax. Or, easier, synthetic 10W-30 motor oil which the manufacturer approved for your AX-5 transmission.

No worries, 75W-90 gear lub and 10W-30 motor oil may sound like way different viscosities but they are not. Gear lubes and motor oils are measured on two different viscosity scales.
