um i may have took in some water.... help

So I was off road and the air intake got water in it and it drove for a ways then died. I think it just needs to dry out for a little bit. But I'm just making sure. When I say may have, it was up to the drivers side mirror. I'll post a pic in a few.

Well now lets see at a minimum you may have fried the Maff and IAT1 sensors you also could have fried the pcm and ficm depending how high the water splashed under the hood and then again ya may have got really lucky and done no damage at all only time will tell.

Um no lol, there's this trail and the concrete part was rained over and I couldn't see where it ended and the creek bed started. But I don't think I fried anything since the only reason the bottom of the mirror was in the water is because it was on 2.5 wheels.

This may sound a little weird but a blow dryer can be used to speed up the process. Take every connector apart and dry out any moisture with dyer also blowing on the wire harness themselves can help.
A small heater placed under the truck engine compartment and drape a tarp over the engine compartment, like a tent can also help speed up the drying.

Next step after you fix your truck is to buy a 4 wheeler:
