Well dang, there's yer problem right there! You're missing the torque arm bushings & stud on the skid plate! I'm surprised you hadn't rolled it sooner without having that bushing to control all that torque!


Glad your okay! You didn't have your youngun' with you, did you?

That dude that yelled at you when your jeep was greasy-side-up.

Should be beat with an axle shaft.

Image saved! Thanks! I am posting that on my facebook. Thanks

No my son was not in the Jeep thank God. I would have KILLED someone for that, my boy is my LIFE! But I am ok not a scratch, or ache or pain.

The Jeep actually survived very well also. The only damage was a scuff in the pic, scratch on the hood (rattle canned anyway) and the broken glass. The glass only broke cause I forgot to lock my tool box mounted on the pass fender, and my wire strippers flew out and busted the drivers side rear window.

The accident happened on Great Neck Road, right past Cox High School. "
Didnt work, google 1719 N Great Neck Rd, VA Beach VA, zoom in all the way, and its on the other side of the road.


Mean Max- I am not sure if you are being serious of thats a joke, I obviously have no clue what your talking about with that bushing.

And I just swapped in a new rear drive shaft today, so thats why the fluid is there. I just did that, installed new Skyjacker 7000 shocks, adjusted steering gear box, and a bunch of other crap, Why? So someone dumb high school girl could hit me and make me put it on the side. Dumb @#$^@!!!!

Thanks everyone for the concern. You guys are awesome.

Suspension seems to be fine, its got BRAND NEW shocks all the way around. The right rear tire is good, just a very small dent in a brand new rim. It will hold air just sucks cause I only have like 100 miles on the new rims.

Max is referring to the open hole on the skid plate where the torque arm(i.e. Insulator stud) for the tranny mount would reside. Here is an illustration ....

It is not really a safety issue, but more of an equipment longevity issue. Without an Insolator stud, the tranny will twist more than normal use under a load. This causes extra wear and tear on the tranny mount and engine mounts. Several Jeepers have even had the tranny mount bracket (not the rubber bushing) shear in two over time. The symptoms from the lack of an Insulator stud vary from none to major. It all depends on how you drive or use your rig.

You need to save that pic of the bottom of the Jeep. We can use it to point out parts to the noobs.
