From the pics I see, it seems you not only destroyed the axle, but you tweaked the frame beyond repair. It *looks* like your jeep is totalled, but hopefully I'm wrong (doubt it though.)

Oh man that makes me nauseous.

I'm amazed it didn't bend the inner C's. That has to be one of the stoutest 30 front ends ever built. Most of the time they snap like a twig! Sucks, but I would have loved to been riding shotgun with you. What a ride!

Be careful out there.

You know, last weekend I was out wheeling and my buddies kept telling me to get some air. I think I may show them this to prove why its not a great idea.
But if your insurance doesn't total it definitely upgrade rather then replace if you got the cash. I don't think insurance covers off road accidents tho you'll have to come up with a story.

Yeap insurance wont cover any off roading damages.. my next option is take it to the mechanic and upgrade everything.. It's going to be a good time with no jeep but oh well it is worth it. As for the ride, sure it was one hell of it! I learned the lesson.. know the dunes first then hit the pedal when sure about it.

Make sure you do the math see what they want to straighten the frame as to getting a good used frame same with the fenders

You need some serious suspension if you want to catch air in a Jeep.

I saw the same happen to a friend's jk jumping off a dune. The result was similarly bad. The entire axle had to be replaced, plus the drive shaft, shocks, windshield, and some other front suspension parts I don't remember. It was thousands of dollars, but covered. With sharp dunes only hit it fast enough to get over without the bottom being stuck, and remember it's better to be stuck than to fly. High centered on a dune it's easy to dig out, just clear under the middle. Be especially. careful after the rains because the sand can become firm and you have to use much less gas. You will be back.

so final verdict was that it was only the front axle nothing else.. the side panels moved cuz of the tires motion when they hit the ground.. all I got to do is find a good front axle and the mechanic fee is gonna be 200 bucks

Thats good news... Ive seen people jump TJs pretty high (4-5 feet)on the Oregon dunes and they seem to survive. You must have really had some hang time! Wish I could have been there to shoot video for ya. Good luck man. Stay safe out there! I destroyed a bronco II jumping it when I was younger. Sure was fun.lol

If you've got a 2.5L and a manual you've got 4.10's
If you've got a 2.5L and auto you've got 3.73's

If you've got a 4.0 then you could have 3.07's or 3.73's

Should have your gearing stamped on your diff...

I know there was more damage than that. Some of the pics you posted showed bent body panels.

Glad nobody was injured, but I can't believe that the frame isn't bent, how was it checked?

he said the tires hit the body.

OP, glad that's all it is. swapping an axle is easy, once you have it ready to be put in it's a matter of an hour tops to swap it.

OP got lucky. search around craigslist and you might get through this spending $200-$300 + labor.

But the body panels are still damaged, aren't they? Is he going to just leave them bent up like they are in the pics?

Two questions if you can answer....

That kind of impact and no airbag deployment? If so then I can wheel with less worry about the possibility of it happening, I have kind of wondered from time to time about wheeling and airbag issues (not really a fear more like a wondering thought).

Your jeep was still able to drive you home after damage like that? If so that's some tuff vehicle and it's nice to know its capable.

If you're buying a used axle, I would suggest replacing the ring and pinion in the new/used axle and your rear axle so that they both match [professional install highly recommended]. Or you'll end up blowing them up or worse taking out your transfer case and transmission too.

I'm surprised it didn't get into the frame, but thank goodness it didn't.

If that frame had 9 lives it just spent em' all.

Ask the insurance hot much to buy back. If the cost is low (reasonable), buy back, keep good parts and sell the rest.
