what is the worse thing that ever happen to your jeep/s?(but not totaled)
what happen to my?... well, we went through this puddle before just not as muddy. long story short, on the way home heard a noise, check everything we could think of... 500 feet away from home the rear axle start to smoke, found out the rear blow out. this is 2 weeks after the front blow out as well... so we are talking replacing 2 axles and a drive shaft... what is the point of keeping it???? let me know what happen to yours and how much it cost?

Flooded transmission in a river, drove it home fine. flushed it, but it was too late. 2200 to rebuild the tranny

Went drivin with a few friends, and we were going down a no maintence road. A 35lb box of chains was airborn and I started hearing a Clunking noise coming from around the first piston and it turns out I dented the hell out of the oil pan so badly it was hitting my piston bearing.

My battery died once and some water leaked through my soft top during the hurricane season. It took a while for that to dry because I have carpet. Luckily that's as bad as it gets for me lol.

i broke the fan clutch on my tj. i am in the process of replacing the bod tub on my cj7 because the previous owners didnt take care of it so it rusted out.

2 Winters ago a huge tree crushed my cj-5 in the middle of the night. It could have been worse,my scrambler was parked next to it,thankfully it only suffered a few dents,and a windshield from the branches. But the cj-5 was crushed, destroyed the tub. :(

81 year old lady hit me head on. Bent the front axle and other things.
no body damage though, thank god for the lift.
On a positive note. now have a front dana 44 w/ locker- rear 8.8 w/ superior axle, teraflex high steer. and was able to do this with my wifes permission. After you do all that you have to replace the tires, to bigger, my wife said so on went the 35's.
And yesterday she told me she loves driving the jeep again "it now has balls." Thanks to the 5.13 gears. :D:D
That was only a two month headache for such a great out come.
