Rear End

I think I may have broken my rear end gear today! Any idea how much its going to cost me to fix it. It will move in 4 wheel drive.

Running about 75mph on I-65 when it let loose with a metal breaking & clanging noise. It will not pull in 2 wheel drive. Drive shaft is still in place and turns when jeep rolls.

It'll cost as much as a regear, about $500 for the rear alone, depending on what need replacing.

What will I get for $500? I talked to a buddy today that works in a junkyard a he said the same money but we didn't have time to get into details, I wasn't sure which rear end I have.

The $500 would be for new gears and whatever is busted inside, and maybe more on labor if you take it to a shop. But if you get a whole new axle, expect to spend a lot more.

if he popped it with only 30's then it is a D35 unless he had done some serious off roading like ten minutes before

and int hat case dont keep putting money into it, get a new axle, it may cost $2-3K, but if theis time it costs 700 and next time it costs 700....
