Just My Luck
 
I'm 17 and my parents bought my first car, a standard 95 red yj with mostly stock parts and a four cylinder engine. Today when I was driving one of those hilly back farm roads, goin around 65 mph, we hit a big bump and when we landed we heard abunch of banging around. After freaking out and alot of panik we called my dad and got it home. Turns out that the engine mounts had broke and everything shifted forward, the drive shaft had moved and was the cause of the banging and the cooling fan was bent and jacked up.
The jeep still drives and the clutch and stick work too. I didnt puncture the radiator. I'm not sure if i want to try and take it out of 2 wheel drive.
If anyone has opinions, info or helpful tips, please don't hold back!
(pictures coming soon)

So, you installed new motor mounts and put everything back together? Might as well try 4H.......

If the entire drive train moved it is time for a little maintenance and inspection before you go out driving again. Why don't you take some pics post em up and lets see the damage and what the probable cause was. This is serious you could have lost control and flippped that thing. We are alll here to help.
