Welcome to the forum. Sorry to hear about your troubles.
You didn't say if you have the Rubicon or not. If not the 231 TC is both easily replaced or rebuildable. CL or Ebay are both good places to start.

I feel your pain, going thru the same thing myself. There are rebuild kits for around $140 and plenty of advice here and on the internet

If you decide to replace you may want to look into an atlas or similar t case. Why replace when you can upgrade?lol

Found out it was my rear differential. Gears are shredded. The only thing pulling me with my front end. If I want to replace my rear end with a Dana 44 axle do I have to change my front axle immediately or will it work just fine together?

The gearing has to be the same front and rear. Other than that, you should be good to go with the d44.

I understand that. there is a very good reason I don't have one. $$$$$. That's why I put "lol" after my statement.

Happy as shit right now. I took my jeep in and it turned out I only needed to replace the spider gears. Saved me so much money I went ahead and put my suspension lift on order!

I did a four inch ruff country. Most affordable for me and safe for my first jeep. I upgrades the steering stabilizer and track bar bracket as well. Now I have to save to upgrade to 33s or 35s. Right now running 31s 😒

You need a to upgrade a little more in order to run tires those size without having to worry about snapping up your axles. What axle do you have in the rear? Dana 44 or Dana 35?
