Offroad went wrong

So today me and some friends decided to go offroading and for the first time ever it went all wrong. As I was coming up a hill I slammed the gas pedal thinking it was more to the hill and oh boy! As I flew like 3 seconds on the air I realized there was no sand to ride on and I ended up slamming the jeep front to the ground. At first I think it was okay but when I took out to pavement I noticed the front tires where inside out and when moving the jeep made cracking noises, I think I might end up messing up the front differential since its leaking oil and cause of the fact that the tires are looking inside out. I also noticed the hood looks asymmetrical to the whole body. Any suggestions on how much this might cost to repair? They also told me I could ended up messing the 4x4 as well..

From the pictures it look like axle is bent. Around 1500-2000 to replace. The side shots of the jeep fenders looks like a bent frame. Insurance may total out jeep pending on cost of repairs. As far as cost.... Thousands. Insurance will total it out if the cost to repair it is higher than the value of the jeep.

Axle is bent, and since you have a Sport you would have the Dana 30 axle which you would be able to find on craigslist for like 100-500 in good condition.

Other thing that might be worth taking a look at is if your frame is bent.

bent axle for sure...
Next Jeep look into a hand throttle...a lot more control and things like that are less likely to happen...

looks like it is just your axle tube. not a huge deal. the body damage came from your tires hitting your fenders

If you're lucky, the quarter panel damage is just from the tires smacking into them, otherwise, you're looking at a bent frame. and congratulations on being the first to successfully install an "extreme camber" kit on a jeep.

Gotta do the whole axle. And Lol I would start wheeling it a bit more before you get lockers that can get you into even more trouble....

Take a CLOSE look at pics #2 #3 #4 it clearly indicates the frame is bent upward, that is why the hood is moved forward and there is a gap at the bottom of the front fenders.The bent axle is the least of your problems.

Ouch! That hurt. Very thankful you were not hurt though. The poor Jeep has definitely seen better days.

Yeah that Dana 30 is gone but like others on here sad you can get on on crageslist for 200- 750 an then take that to a body shop to have the frame looked at an if it's bad you can get one from a junk yard for around 100 or so. Hope you get that jeep back on them trails!

a locker is just a single part of an axle, you broke the whole axle. the two are completely unrelated.

You need to get a orange '69 Charger, paint an 01 on the side and a confederate flag on the roof. Stay away from Jeeps.

words of wisdom... when you're wheeling - here's probably the best piece of advice you'll ever get...

go as slow as possible and as fast as necessary...

Back in 1975 I bought a CJ5 and one of first things I put on was an front axle truss. I have a 12 Sport now and don't recall ever seeing one for the front axle. In fact one of my friends made it for me it was very easy to install and it gave the axle good support.

Darn. So, Jeeps can't fly. And all this time, I thought I had the Dukes of Hazzard beat off-road. I guess not. Keep the wheels on the ground when off-roading. Well, thanks for the lesson.
