Personally, I'd just stop driving in that deep of water and find other offroad things to do with my Jeep.

|George1984||Thank you Jerry... I see your very knowledgeable with Jeeps! I did exactly that a few times already.. Now to the next question.. How do I stop that from happening in the future without having to avoid the water???|

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.
