nmdesertrat On my first visit to some dunes I was going way to fast as I crested and caught some air. It was like everything went into slo-mo waiting to hit the ground that was coming up on me! I can imagine how you felt. Bike was OK I suffered a sprained ankle.

MTJeepTJ Hopefully you just repair the axle and keep your Jeep. It does suck you dont have a video. I wouldnt sell it afterwards because you bent an axle housing and bent the fenders. Use it as experience and move on. Some of the best Jeeps have seen action like yours. Your Jeep isnt damaged, its "seasoned".

1jeeplvr Good lesson is never go balls over a hill or thru a body of water without knowing whats beyond it.

Captain Ed To the OP, great news if its only the axle. Drive-break-fix-sell=learn. Its a Jeep.

To everyone else, not to make fun of the OP but I have not laughed that hard at some of the responses in a long time. I actually have tears in my eyes from some of those replies.

Ask the insurance hot much to buy back. If the cost is low (reasonable), buy back, keep good parts and sell the rest.

W5KVV I'm surprised it didn't get into the frame, but thank goodness it didn't.

If that frame had 9 lives it just spent em' all.

DiscoBayJoe You need to install a general-lee dixie horn.

Lithium Lotus If you're buying a used axle, I would suggest replacing the ring and pinion in the new/used axle and your rear axle so that they both match [professional install highly recommended]. Or you'll end up blowing them up or worse taking out your transfer case and transmission too.

ah I see what you mean. I thought you were referring to frame damage

Megawatt308 Two questions if you can answer....

That kind of impact and no airbag deployment? If so then I can wheel with less worry about the possibility of it happening, I have kind of wondered from time to time about wheeling and airbag issues (not really a fear more like a wondering thought).

Your jeep was still able to drive you home after damage like that? If so that's some tuff vehicle and it's nice to know its capable.

OP, glad that's all it is. swapping an axle is easy, once you have it ready to be put in it's a matter of an hour tops to swap it.

OP got lucky. search around craigslist and you might get through this spending $200-$300 + labor.

Mischievous Cat Glad nobody was injured, but I can't believe that the frame isn't bent, how was it checked?

If you've got a 2.5L and a manual you've got 4.10's
If you've got a 2.5L and auto you've got 3.73's

If you've got a 4.0 then you could have 3.07's or 3.73's

Should have your gearing stamped on your diff...

OregonPlinker Thats good news... Ive seen people jump TJs pretty high (4-5 feet)on the Oregon dunes and they seem to survive. You must have really had some hang time! Wish I could have been there to shoot video for ya. Good luck man. Stay safe out there! I destroyed a bronco II jumping it when I was younger. Sure was fun.lol

gbush so final verdict was that it was only the front axle nothing else.. the side panels moved cuz of the tires motion when they hit the ground.. all I got to do is find a good front axle and the mechanic fee is gonna be 200 bucks

Abdul-Hakeem I saw the same happen to a friend's jk jumping off a dune. The result was similarly bad. The entire axle had to be replaced, plus the drive shaft, shocks, windshield, and some other front suspension parts I don't remember. It was thousands of dollars, but covered. With sharp dunes only hit it fast enough to get over without the bottom being stuck, and remember it's better to be stuck than to fly. High centered on a dune it's easy to dig out, just clear under the middle. Be especially. careful after the rains because the sand can become firm and you have to use much less gas. You will be back.
