Yea pls tell us number on ^^^^diagram. Sounds like you broke a shaft. The wheel bolts directly to the shafts.
I don't know if it's the shaft. The car is drivable. I think the axle is just a little bent. When driving behind you can see the left rear wobble a little at low speeds. Its not really noticeable when driving it.
Check out Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market searches all your local junkyards for parts. It definitely sounds like an axle shaft. The differential is generally considered that big hunking thing in the center and its innards.

Ok. I spoke to 4wd.com. The Axle shaft is $175.99 and I need RTV sealant @ $5.99 and gear oil 3 @ $16.99. I also need a blower motor fan speed resister but they didn't have it for a 2006. Are these good prices? Seems to be when considering the dealer wants $500.
Better prices but you still need to check your junkyards. This shaft is the same in an Cherokee and a most grand cherokee if you can't find a tj.
Really? I didn't think those would be compatible. It's good to know. Compared to $500 just for the shaft, I am happy to pay that price from 4wd.com. I did go on the Used Auto Parts site and put in my info, but the site only keeps the info for 48 hrs. My mechanic has us on a list as well. We are leaving on vacation in a few days and we want to sell it, so we want to get the car in while we are away. At this point, buying it new is probably more convenient.
Did you want to sell the shaft off your Jeep? Just let me know what you want for it. I'll be ordering my part by this Friday, so please let me know. Thanks
honestly I don't have time to tear it out, box it up and ship it out by friday.
I'd do it if you weren't on such as tight time frame.
Thanks, but I ordered the axle already. It was only $105.99 for the axle shaft. I can't believe Chrysler wanted $500 for the same part? OEM or not. I wanted to get the Jeep into my mechanic before we left on vacation this Saturday. I'm having the parts drop shipped to him. Once the Jeep is fixed it will be in much better shape to sell We got a good number of responses from Craigslist, but when I mentioned the axle, I think they lost interest. Guess I can't blame them. I do have one guy who is local who is waiting for it to be fixed. Wish me luck!
