The mechanic said the car needs new axle housing only as everything elso is ok.
I guess i will fix everything to a brand new condition and sell it to the dealer so i will stick to the dana 30 since they are cheaper and does not require modifications, then buy a new jk that is auto with dana 44 and diff locks from jeep.
But that is sure will cost me some cash
Anyone knows a new front axle housing that i can get cheaper?

Clorporate 14 bolt or Rockwell converted to steer axle is what you need!!Cheap

JKs are very good on dunes stock. Part of driving on sand dunes is to go fast enough to avoid being high-centered on a sharp dune, but not so fast you go airborne. Everyone does this by mistake at times, though, I usually go airborne once a week, but not much, just centimeters.
We cross large numbers of sharp dunes this with stock JKs all day, many days a week, and they stand up very well, and have better mobility than the Toyotas (except FJ or swb Land Cruiser which are equal) and Patrols (except the rare swb model which are equal). So the JK is fine, you can keep it stock and just be a little careful if you don't want to spend money. I'm not kidding, man people in Saudi do maybe 8 hours 100% dune driving per week with stock JKs.

|rtguy||don't waste your time buying a new d44 and sleeving/gussetting. buy a tera44/prorock44/ or go even bigger to a pr60 or tera crd60. you can jump those no problem|

|Kota7x||You jumped your Jeep! These things are not made for that, they are made to go slow over rocks. As for the repairs, I think you are going to be out of pocket for them. To me it sounds like you need a new axle housing. Also you are possibly going to need new control arms, suspension components, new steering, all assuming that these are bent. Good Luck and keep us updated!|

Your going to need a new axle assembly. From the factory they are not built to take abuse like that. Go with a D44 and build it correctly with axle gussets and stronger axles. Just a heads up, your going to get flamed. This is a tough crowd. BTW welcome to the forums.

Plz advice 2012 front axle is leaking oil
Guys i need ur advice, i have a 2012 jk sport S, which has only 1300 miles on it, i was sand duning and i jumped 5 feet off gnd, the car landed on the front wheels first which caused the front axle shafts ( L & R) to be bent and leaked oil from ctr + front shield was multiple cracked. I honestly did not expect such quality.
- Smebody tell me plz is this normal? Nissan patrol and toyota lc 70 did it without problems.
- Do u think the dealer will fix these problems under warranty?
- If i needed to replace The front axle, should i just upgrade to dnan 44 with lockers? Mine doesn't have lockers.
- can i find brand new front axle cheaper?
Thank you guys, a little confused.
