Jackass of all trades

So I got brutally stuck last weekend doing some back yard wheeling (again- groan) in the yard next to my marina parking lot. Big mud filled hole just the right size to swallow the front half of the 81. We tried to dig, used the high lift and planks, burned out the winch after pulling a Frontier towards the LC and burned the clutch of an F-150 with a snatch strap. Fortunatly the console fridge was full of Red Stripe. The mud line was up to the top of the LF headlight, a DEPO, which is now full of mud. I basically removed the grille and lights and sprayed out all mud including the insides of the front fenders and the radiator etc. (Discovered no rust whatsoever- in fact the thing looks new behind the scenes!) Used a big tow truck and 150 feet of chain to pull her out. Tech question: What else should I check for mud/water intrusion? I cleaned the engine bay and underside thuroughly. Thanks.
