Jeep Wrangler Unlimited X: I have a 2008 jeep wrangler unlimited…

Customer Question
I have a 2008 jeep...
I have a 2008 jeep wrangler unlimited x. Took it out on some trails, splashed a bit, and two hours later the engine stalled. Won't run at and idle, and has no power to drive, let alone run. The tps light and check engine light came on. It sat a month, now the tps light is off, and check engine light is flashing. Changed spark plugs. Was thinking maybe maf? And then tps unit? What are your thoughts? It has 70k miles on it
