That would have never happed with a piar of 2.5 ton Rockwells!
Probably not. Got some laying around that I can have? Also, I need new wheels and tires.
- 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.
