Any Good Jeep Mechanics in Clearwater/ Tampa. Please Help/ TJ Going Down

I have a 1999 TJ with a 4 banger. I went out mudding with some friends:dance:, got stuck in the mud and had some mud and water slip into the trans:doh:. Needless to day after the 2nd fluid flush within 3K miles, I keep finding chunks of metal about 1/2inch big:banghead:. And not to mention that when I shift into 3rd and 4th gear it grinds, as well as when I down shift. I am also hearing some mild knocking on the engine:confused::facepalm::doh::banghead:.

I made an attempt to contact Jeff's Jeep Yard, but was told that they could not get anyone in for the next month to month and a half for service.

Please if anyone is able to help let me know. Thank you.

first recommendation would be land o' lakes 4x4 ( second would be 4wheel parts off florida avenue... i think they're back open. also, tampaoffroad off hillsborough ave.

other options are hoyt automotive (hoyt4x4)... or xtreme jeep.
