Start by checking and cleaning all the engine control connections. One may be dirty etc. It's a place to start and it's free to check and clean them.

i think it is finally fixed after putting in a new o2 sensor(orig. 80k and black) and spark plugs $55 which was cheap compare to changing the fluid in both differentials, transmission(Redline MT-90), transfer case, and engine oil.......all in all i figure i will stick to just mud and no more 3.5ft deep puddles
