I have just bought myself a 2001 TJ 4.0 Sport here in England.
Unfortunately whilst sitting parked up another vehicle glanced the rear wheel and made a bit of a mess! Its fortunately for me, as this is how I bought it from the insurance company for reasonably cheap
There is no frame damage, but the right axle tube is bent like a banana! I have removed the axle, and am currently looking for a replacement
Looking around this forum I beleive the axle is a D44, can someone please confirm this form me
I have checked the tag and its a 3.07
I have had a brief look to see what's available in the UK but have not had much luck at the moment So I am considering other options like re-tubing, but are the tubes available for these axles???
I was hoping I could find someone parting out a TJ here in the UK, even if it meant swapping the diff over. But have not found anything as yet, but have only had the Jeep a few days! But might need that luck getting a replacement.

Try Gforce in North,Jeep specialist in Enfield,Charlton Jeep breakers,there is loads in UK just google it.I got another Wrangler for parts as well but keeping it for myself
btw I was looking on this Jeep on copart,same year like mine
Yeah I have tried all of the above companies as well as ACD without any luck I will just have to hold out a little long until something comes up. I dont even mind if the ratio if wrong as I can swap the CW&P over

I will take a closer look when im back at my workshop later on
Hampshire (Nr Basingstoke), I dont mind travelling though!
I spoke to Tommy @ Just Jeeps today, he has an axle with a damaged crown wheel, but doesn't really want to part with it, but he said ring him again if I get desperate and he may do some sort of deal on it.
