Default Rumbles after mudding

I have a 2014 wrangler and I was out wheeling yesterday and got pretty muddy. Raining a lot today and the mud is washing off but I was heading to work and whenever I stopped at a red light it started "rumbling". Vibrating pretty good but once I accelerate it goes away. Any ideas on what it could be??

Probably sucked a badger or ground hog into the air intake. I bet that guy is getting hungry.

Try washing the jeep with red KoolAid.

Rain doesn't wash the undercarriage
Wash out brakes and inside of wheels

No...
I've never seen rain wash the mud out of the inside of the wheels...and not always with the brakes

I've never known mud on the exhaust the cause a vibration...

Considering the OP said it happens when he is stopped; then I don't understand how mud on the brakes and inside of the wheels would cause a vibration
