Hole in pumpkin!

WELL HELLO JEEP NATION! I HAVE DONE A LOT OF READING ON THE POSTS ON HERE AND LEARNED A LOT. NOW FOR MY FIRST POST, WE HAVE A 2000 TJ WITH A 4.0, STANDARD TRANS THAT MY 16 YEAR OLD THINKS IT CAN POP A WHEELIE. NOW I HAVE A PINION GEAR STICKING OUT THE BOTTOM OF THE PUMPKIN! BASICLY I NEED A NEW REAREND, I NEED TO DO IT AS CHEAP AS POSSIBLE. IT IS JUST A DAILY DRIVER TO SCHOOL AND SOMETIMES A MUD BOG. IVE PRICED SOME FROM 1800-2400. ANY IDEAS? THANKS

post pictures of said damage. we like pictures

1800-2400 for a rear end is nuts. just go to the local u-pull-n-pay, find one from the same model thats geared the same & in good shape and install it. shouldn't cost more than $200. alternatively you could weld brackets to a Ford 8.8, another popular route.

I hate to laugh at this, but Its sadly humorous.

Please post pics. And stop yelling at me.

sounds like you need a new rearend....call or email www.Daveysjeeps.com There's never anything Jeep related at my local wrecking yards, maybe you'll have better luck.

some salvage/junk yards are on a nationwide computer system, and they can track parts down for you. might try that.

A used replacement rear Dana 35c axle should cost you no more than $300 at the most from a junk yard. Make sure it's out of a 1997 to 2006 Wrangler and it will bolt right in. The axle ratio is the only concern, try to find one to match yours. The axle ratio can be found embossed into the steel tag located at the 9 o'clock position of the axle's differential cover. Your TJ's ratio is either 3.07 or 3.73 because of your 4.0L engine. A Dana 35c from a Wrangler with the 2.5L four-banger engine won't work because its ratio is definitely going to be 4.10.

One last concern: The majority of rear axles used in the Wrangler are the very common and inexpensive to replace Dana 35c. However, it's possible yours has the stronger and more expensive Dana 44 rear axle. If it does, and your budget is tight, you can still replace it with the cheaper Dana 35c which is a direct swap without changes needed.

You can identify which you have in the rear by the below photos. The first photo shows the standard Dana 35c rear axle which has a perfectly oval cover. The second photo shows the stronger Dana 44 rear axle.

Will this fit?

3.07 Limited Slip Rear (D35) differential carrier with ring & pinion gears.

I just regeared my 2000 Sahara.

If you regeared your D35 to anything lower than 3.55 like 3.73, 4.10, 4.56, etc., that 3.07 carrier won't work with your new gears. Plus replacing your existing carrier with any new carrier would mean you would have to have your new R&P gears set up again which would run about $250.

Yes, the regear was not cheap. I meant to say I have the old parts left over sitting in a box. Wondered if it would fit low n black's jeep.

It would fit but only if he wants to run 3.07 or 3.55 gearing which is not likely. I'd simply try to sell it somewhere like Craigslist but I can't imagine there being much of a market for a used Dana 35c Tracloc carrier that is limited to a 3.07 or 3.55 gear ratio. Plus for the cost to install them into another Dana 35c housing, he can buy a used Dana 35c housing with everything already inside. Used D35c housings regularly sell for $300 or less, that is what I sold mine for.
