So, I found some 2 tracks right around some power lines a little ways away from my house. It's only like 3/4 of a mile down and back from the main road before I hit a gate, I was just driving around a little bit, first time I've had it off the road... so I got home and was just checking under the jeep (05 TJ-X 6 speed manual) and saw this.
first, pardon the noobie question, but what exactly is this right in the center of the pictures (square thing with drain on it). I'm thinking possibly the transmission since it's got a drain. second, it appears to be dented on the far side of the picture
(which would be the drivers side of the jeep). is this a really bad problem, because it's driving and shifting completely fine, (except for a small click that I can feel and hear in the clutch when I press it in from no pressure).
obviously, I think it's definitely time to invest in some jeep armor...
any suggestions on the click or the dent??
