Today I have changed the following after 100K; Water pump, radiator, alternator, condenser, rotors, rear and front main seals, Transfer case seals, Head gasket (Don't ask why but I had a small oil leak I just wanted something to do that day), electric seat motor, airbag module, RT door window regulator, gas filter (pain in the butt), wiper motor, front headlight assy(Foggy want a new look anyway) Take a deep breath......and changes all the interior lighting to LED and cool dash!! Now I think that covers it....I think.. Ohmmmmmmm
Yeap, it's probably chewing that axle up. I think you can re sleeve it for 30 or get a new axle for 120ish. I would re axle it, just because I don't like dumping good fluid if I botch the sleeve install.

Oh bad news. The left axle is trashed and the bearing obliterated. Looks like the pinion gear bearing went bad cause its loose. I did not know this until I took everything apart. I am not sure what to do at this point but my neighbor thinks I should get a doner rearend if I want to keep the Jeep rather than to rebuild. I am note sure what went bad first. The carnage is awlful. I guess the vibration was too bad but I did not noticed it. Crap.

Can you snap a pic of it? Good news is you can find rear from pull-a-part for about a hundred bucks. Which is the cost of a new shaft anyway.

It all seems pretty overwhelming I'm sure but people here will help you get it figured out.

I'm not sure. It all depends on if they are hard to find and if they need any fab work to install them.

Good luck, post the carnage and your fixes.
