Notorious turdy 5 strikes again... I think

91 yj, 4 cyl, 5 speed, 4.10, stock axles, 33's, winch... The basics of a high school students Jeep
Sooooo while I was heading home from our ranch a few miles away today, I had it in first and was pulling out onto the road and it felt like the rear-end was clunking/producing thick vibrations and what not, then I shifted to 2nd and it stopped... Then I came to a 4 way to turn left and when I took off in first it did it again, shifted to 2nd, did it again, shifted to 3rd... stopped... stopped at a stop sign, took off in 1st and shifted 2nd and 3rd and in each of those gears it had the same problem.... pulled over, put it in neutral (with the flashers) and rolled it back and forth a couple times... took off in first. nothing. shifted to 2nd.... nothing.
So I guess my question is am I right about it's problem being the rear end??
Also, could I buy a D44 (or any axle really) with 4.10's already in and put it under my jeep for $500??... Cuz that's all I've got left..
Thank you before hand

Sounds like it could be the spiders possibly.

Pop the cover and look.

Cheaper option would be an 8.8 with 4.10s. ~$200 for the axle, find somone who can weld, pay them 50 bucks to setup the perches for you, then the rest of your cash for connecting the brake lines, driveshaft, etc.

Its easy enough to jack it up and pop the cover off and take a look...if there is nothing wrong, it cost you some RTV and gear fluid... CHEAP... Sounds like a tranny issue thou. check your fluid , drain it and look for metal... Again cheap and easy...

For a swap an ford 8.8 is the way to go. 4.10s same bolt pattern... you can probably do it for just about $500

Some info for you.. http://www.jeepsunlimited.com/forums...d.php?t=371713

I agree with nhfire sounds like a trans issue.

Trans?? damn.... I'll still check my rear end out though, and replace my trans oil. What oil do I use for each?? just some 10 w30??
And around here D44's are around $200 also, I was just thinking that so I could reuse my spring perches and u bolts, are they not around $200 where you guys are??

not a d44 in any width that would make sense for a yj. 10w30 synthetic motor oil for the trans. 80w90 gear oil in the diff.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.

Thanks rat, and those D44's are too short?? I only persist with the D44 because of the no c-clip issue, I thought I could use one out of a Cherokee

C-clips are a non issue on an 8.8. And it is stronger then a 44.

If you can find an xj Cherokee d44 its the correct width but only ever came with 3.73 gears. They different make many.
If you mean fsj Cherokee they also didn't come with the 4.10's you're after. There is also the fact many of them were offset pumpkin rear ends.

The tab says to use synthetic. Dino oil probably quiets the gear noise better though.

95+ are prefered due to having disc brakes.
