Probably not. Got some laying around that I can have? Also, I need new wheels and tires.

So, what's the:
  • Laundry list of the damage,

    Broken rear pinion shaft
    Broken ring gear
    Twisted Driver's Side Rear Axle Shaft
    Broken Traction Bar Bracket
    Bent Radius Arm
    Bent Tie Rod

  • The expected parts upgrade,

    Replace rear axle with a Dodge rear 44 a friend has laying in his back yard.
    Re-gear said axle
    Straighten my tie rod
    Straighten my Radius Arm
    Weld the traction bar to the new axle with new brackets I will fab myself
    Truss the axle and bracket mounts to prevent the traction bar from coming off again (this is the second time this has happened)

  • The time to do the Upgrade,

    Give me a couple weeks. I have to get the axle and build it. I can only do this on weekends, so time is limited.

  • The date the Jeep will be back on the trail?

    Hopefully by New Year's. Maybe Christmas weekend.

Yep! A couple of weeks ago, I saw a pair here in Spokane for $250... but the divorce lawyer's bill would have been a little steep.
