Need help (water in oil)

Ok searched and searched through the threads and found nothing. So heres my dillemma

Out playing in my 08 jk, i just put 4in lift and 33x1350 toyo mt on it.. mud was deeper than i thought and stuck it.. when i got it out, aftermarket air filter was trashed and had water in oil.... now, it ran for about 10 minutes (before i knew there was water in oil) then shut off....had to be towed home.....

Changed oil and filter 4 times, now i have straight oil, no water, pulled plugs overnight and cleaned them up replaced air filter. But now, when i crank it and it runs, it sounds like a diesel and every so often it will have this squeaky knocking sound and the oil pressure light is on..... dont want to drive it but need to figure out whats wrong with it.....its my DD and the wife is Pissed!! Lol

Take off the oilpan and make sure you didn't toast your rod bearings.

Bend a valve, not so much. Bend a connecting rod or bust a piston, most certainly...
