O/D light flashing after mudding

As you may or may not know me and Mean4.6 came up to Boggs and Boulders (Off road park) this weekend and we've been flogging on the trucks pretty hard. He came up out of a mud hole and said his O/D light was flashing and we are wondering if there in something that isn't too ominous that can cause that. What what all can cause that light to come on? So far it seems to be normal, but even after shutting the truck off and "resetting" it will come back on as soon as the tires spin, but driving around it stays off. With 4 wheel ABS is it popping the light because the tires aren't all going the same speed? We'd like to be able to keep playing tomorrow, but of course we need to make sure it drives home and hopefully can save it before it totally craps out if it is a problem. Someone school us up so we can decide whether to keep playing or not. Thanks.

BTW, We gotta climb up to the top of a hill here to get service, so it might be a bit before we check back in, but one of us will check back tonight and probably in the morning.

Not to be THAT guy, but seriously....no one knows what might be setting this light off?

It flashes to let you know that there is a trouble code stored in the computer. It could be anything from a bad solenoid, or sensor all the way to tranny going out. You need to have it checked before dogging the truck anymore. Keep in mind that this is a holiday weekend and not everyone will be on the forums.

is the ABS light on? Is the speedo working?
If no and no, change the rear ABS/speedo sensor on the top of the rear diff. Something like $35 at napa.

maybe you just need to clean the mud/water from the connections at the range sensor and/or other connections.
