1997 tj

I Have put this on here before about a Severe Vibration. I replaced both Front Hubs. Both axle wheel Joints. Checked the Front axle Gears O.K. Tonight Pulled the Rear drive Shaft, To do the U-joints. Dropped the Rear Diff. Cover and Found some tore up Teeth on the Ring Gear. Looked at the Pinion Gear cant find anything Wrong there. Looked at the Cluster gears Look Fine also. I Dont Know what gears in It because the Tag was Covered in Gunk. Anybody Had Just a Ring gear get trashed without Taking out the Pinion or the Spider Gears...

If your jeep has been regeared there is the chance they were set up incorrectly...
