5.2 will crank but wont turn over

plain and simple, i went through about a foot of water at a local offroad area. i have 2 inch spacers and 31's so it was not a problem, however though, as i came to the end of the trail, i turned right and then my jeep died. i thought it was hydrolocked, so i removed all plugs and got some moisture out of the cylinders, then i recharged the battery and checked the air filter and fuel pressure, and still no start. someone help!! also! im not sure if its necessary but i dont think my cap and rotor could have possibly gotten wet.

The line isn't about the motive, it's merely the result.
