Rear end assembly parts shematic

Does anyone on here have a breakdown of the rear end assembly of a WJ? My axle went out and I bought a used one from caliper to caliper. Now the decision is whether to swasp the whole thing or just raid the parts....

Depends on how your axle "went out". If it was internal to the gearset, then I would do a full swap (assuming the used one is sound), because raiding for parts and getting all the settings and gear mesh just right might be harder. If it was just a bearing or seal, maybe raid for parts.

It appears that the caliper locked up and over heated the entire thing. I was driving and then there was no power going to the wheel. When I got out and looked under it, the hub and axle housing were glowing red. I can hear the axle turning in the hub but it is not "connected".

You may be able to change the axles but the ring and pinion are matched sets and will take a good bit of time if you swap over parts. I would swap out whole thing. Also check both assemblies to see if it is posi-rear or limited slip.
