Today is a sad day

for me and the Jeep.

I knew my front gears were done already so i really havnt done much to fix it seeing how my axle is bent already because of this...

but anywho i have a DD and figured i would take the jeep out into the local creek and no more than 200 feet in my gears start to act up and had to reverse out...

Sad day

Alonzo

Serves you right...that was pretty stupid. I can only think of one Jeep around here set up for jumping. You aren't that person.

It is your business...but then you posted it on here for everyone to see? Honestly what did you think would happen?

I think you took my comment a bit too seriously

Have you popped open the front diff yet to see what happened? Looks like the pinion gear may have been sheared off which allowed it to be pulled outward like that. Or perhaps the pinion bearings were completely crushed. Odd failure since I wouldn't think much force is applied on the pinion, but instead on the carrier bearings since they are what was most likely bent in the axle tubs.
