You're going to have to consider what the overall damage is. Some insurance companies will total a vehicle just due to the age, but if you "diamond-ed" your frame, it's going to be very difficult to put that back together. You will likely have to consider keeping this Jeep for a long time as it will be difficult to sell with a salvage title. Post up some photos of the damages, etc. Tell us what got hurt on the Jeep. The AX 15 is not a difficult transmission to rebuild, many of us here have done it, but it is also easy to swap it out. For me to figure out why you have 1-4 but 5th/reverse is jammed would require me to pull it apart. 5th/Reverse share the same shift hub in the rear case, but I really can't figure out the mechanism of injury even if I knew what gear you were in on impact. You can pull off your skid and T case, then pull off the rear case housing and have a look at that shift hub without having to pull the trans. If you can unjam something, then you're back in action. If you wedged some interlock pins within the intermediate plate, then it will require more work. It all depends on your skill level or adventurous spirit, and how much time, money, effort you want to put on it in the Michigan winter.
Tell us more about this, I'm interested and have some thoughts.
