Default Problems after mudding!

So yesterday i took the jeep out in the mud for the first time. It did great until about an hour into it. I was heading towards the mud hole and it bucked and then stalled out. Put it in nutral, statred fine, gave it some gas and felt fine, put it in drive and bucked and stalled again. Tried it once more and did the same thing. Popped the hood and it was pretty hot. Looked at my temp and it was only like 220. I let it sit for around 30 min, started it up and it tried to stall again but i gave it a little gas and it got goin fine. Let it sit for another 30min to and hour and then drove on the hour drive home on the interstate and it did fine. It has been running fine all day until just now i was at the store and put it in reverse and it bucked but dident stall this time and then bucked again as i was backing into my driveway.

Any ideas? Sorry if its kinda long. Just trying to cover everything.

Do you always have to put it in neutral to start it or was this the first time?
How deep was the water/mud mixture? I would be looking for loose or corroded connections on tranny especially the NSS and around the tranny dip stick I believe there are some connectors. Make sure you don't have a bunch of mud caked around your engine bay and transmission even inland the mud around here seems very salty and corrosive. Good luck

It wasent really "mud". More like wet dirt that we made with a water hose because plant city hasent gotten any rain in god knows how long! haha

And yes this is the first time it has done this. I just checked my trans fluid and it is black and i smelt somthing burining yesterday but wasent sure what it was. NOW I KNOW!

Now what?

And it starts the same in park or nutral. I just stuck it in nutral because it is the closest thing to drive
