I know this is an old thread but thanks for posting up all of the details so a noob can do an axle swap in their garage! I plan to swap in an old Dana 35 to replace my (even older) Dana 35 on my TJ.

Glad to hear your wife is okay first of all. Can't give you much advice on whether insurance will total it or not but I would think so. Either way if you or the OP had any mods on the jeep take those...
