Default Hydro Locked 4.7 Durango

Hi everybody, I'm trying to help my so with his 2000 Durango. He took it hunting and crossed a creek successfully, on his way back he thought he should have more speed when crossing the creek because he almost got stuck the first time. Sooo.... He floored it , hit the creek with enough speed that it floated it to deeper water. About 5 foot deep! He almost made it out when it hydro locked. I have it home and it's torn down. He broke 2 connecting rods, the crank is good, but I'm having a hard time finding rods. Anybody know where I can find them? I've tried the auto parts stores, Summit Racing, Rock Auto, Google....... Are these things made of unobtainium? Thanks, Jim

I am looking for one for myself. There are a couple on ebay right now but I am waiting to hear back from my machine shop first if they have any extra.
