The only benefit to keeping this carrier would be not having to set the gears back up.

If it was done you'd just be driving. You ain't done you just scratched the surface of ruining a perfectly good TJ. And I say that with love.

Oh damn it's the ORO steering with the extra little tabs on the knuckle.

Ooof that weld looks terrible.

Check the bracket that attaches the track bar to the frame. I'm guessing it's bent.
