Harvey flooded 05 2500 5.9 4x4 - what to drain/change

Hey guys, Its been awhile since I've needed your expertise on my 05 dodge 2500 4x4 5.9... So, I was flooded in Harvey and unfortunately my truck had sat in high water. Probably 1 to 2' in the cab. I've already done quite a bit, but I don't know much about the axles, rear end etc. Can one of you help me out with what I should do?
edited to add, i already cleaned transmission pan, filter and gasket and replaced transmission fluid, and oil. Basically the basics thst I know how to do.
I did already post this, but I think in the wrong category.

Open Your wallet, credit card's savings accounts, to the PARTS Vendor companies, first off start with all computer testing, next tranny overhaul, all wheel bearings, differential overhaul including bearings, fuel system, then interior, last for me is a complete wiring harness, as salt water will eventually destroy it all, short Idea get rid of truck;;;;

Well, engine blew in 2012, I'm already in over 15k, not including the cost of the truck. And not including New a/c system in 2014 and the list goes on. Luckily, NO salt water. No water in the oil, changed it. Had a little water in transmission pan. Drained, cleaned, changed. I haven't even turned it over. No water in fuel, I hope. Siphoned the tank, all good. But don't know if it got in the lines. My main concern is rear end, ball joints, etc. It didn't get into the kick board or any electrical, except whats under the truck, which I don't know much about where it runs... I just know I'm missing something. I'm going to do everything I can myself, then take it to the shop.
