Went into this knowing that Jeep has a rear diff issue. Anyways, while the flat bed tried to load it up two loud pops later the drive line came off and dropped. Something is at an angle, which I am pretty positive its not supposed to be. You can see in the pic.
And also while I waited on the correct truck I pulled the plug on the cover and felt around, didnt feel any fluid but I felt sludge on the inside of the cover. It was milky brown in color.
Pretty sure the D35 is toast, anyone have any DIY threads with pics on here for dropping the axle for a swap vs swapping in new gears? Not sure if I want to stick with the D35 or move up to a 44 like on my Niner. Not planning on doing anything really extreme with this Jeep, might give it a 3" lift later down the road but that isn't on the board anytime soon.
Ill know more when I open it tomorrow.
