ok so me and my buddy went wheeling yesterday up at middle st varian we hit quite a few water crossingings that are fairly deep. my buddy has an 09 wrangler we were on the trail and he just kinda popped the clutch and killed it . after starting it back up he put it in to first and nothing... second nothing... third nothing.. pretty much nothing at all.. the jeep would start so it did not seem like the clutch you could put it in to gear while the rig is running and there is just nothing. i heard somewhere that if the trans gets to much water retention that it will just shut the trans down. does anybody have any idea please help so we can get his azz back on the trail

Transfer case in neutral?
Maybe the linkage to the transfer case broke. Very common event.
You can try putting the transfer case in gear by crawling under an moving the lever on top of the case.

I'd get it towed home, drain the transmission fluid, flush it, and refill it with new tranny fluid before driving it, just to be safe.

Sorry this happened to him. But as stated earlier, don't shift a manual in the water/mud. Hopefully, no real harm done.
