Axle broken??

Ok I'm new at this can you help me out? I went and did a little bit of rock crawling and I got a little excited and I tried this pile of rocks I saw. Anyways I got stuck in the middle and my friend went out to check it out when I tried getting out he noticed the right rear tire wasn't moving when I pushed the gas and it made a clicking noise so I stoped and had another jeep take me out! What was that clicking noise did I bream something? Plz help!!! Ty

Sounds like you broke the spider gears or mabey the ring and pinion gears. What axle do you have? If it was a D35 the broke shaft would have walked out of the housing....

Do you have a traction aid? Locker, limited slip, posi......or is it open? Did you get your jeep home? If so pull the rear diff cover and take a look or a pic and post it...

well you should pull the diff cover and look at your spider gears and your ring+pinion. Was you Tj hopping when you were on the throttle? Was there a loud SNAP!?

IDT a D44 is a c-clip axle so you may have broken a shaft but dont quote me on that....

B4 you pull the cover go buy some 80W-90 gear oil(2 quarts) and some RVT (The Right Stuff gasket maker is GREAT) so you have a way to put your diff back together to drive it if its your DD

I'll Take the diff cover off and have a look but no there was no loud snap. The tire had traction but it seemed like it didn't have enough power to take it out of bind. all the other tires had no traction.

If your Tj came with the fractory Trac-lock the clutches that engage it can wear out(quickly btw) and make it malfunction; trying to decide which tire it wants to spin/give power to.

Have you got your factory build sheet yet? If you leave a message with Chrysler and give them your VIN # they will give you the list of options your jeep was built with. IF you knew what you had axle/diff wise it'd be alot easier to help you out.....

Does your rear axle have a steel drain plug on the diff cover? or a rubber fill plug? Steel=Dana 44;rubber=Dana 35
