What have you checked so far? The hubs are easy to check. Jack up the rear axle, remove the wheels. The hubs should come off. Also verify one of the hubs didn’t come “unlocked”.
If the hubs check out, then remove your diff cover and check internals.

I haven’t check anything yet, on the to do list this week. I don’t think the right rear hub came unlocked while driving. When I pulled over i tried driving in every situations with the rear hubs “free and unlocked”

Thread: 2006 Jeep Rear End Problem

Well , there's discussion of the Dana 35 and its worthiness on a couple of threads and I've heard that any time in the past that a grand cherokee rear ( Dana 35 ) is in need of replacement , the rebuild is too expensive in a shop to justify the worth . If it is decided that your rear is not going to be rebuilt in your driveway , as it is dedicated work requiring proper gauges to measure run out , clearance , gear pitch and such , then the best choice is to replace with a Dana 44 . For a cj5 , they were found in the dj5 U.S. mail jeeps and that is a direct replacement as it will bolt in without modification which is the best choice to get your TJ up and running soonest at the least expense. Up here locally , there are not many , if any d44's for fit to a CJ chassis and that rear would go at least $300 and up depending on mileage as they are favored for replacement and locally here there just is not the big market for the CJ since the trend is newer jeeps .
its shameful that even the YJ is not abundant in local auto salvage and any yards even close that may have them know that these parts net high profit and are immediately sold to whom ever is seeking parts for jeep clubs and dealers of used jeeps for repair and sales. That makes it difficult to obtain one for replacement for just one jeep and of course means it drives up the cost.
Its not impossible to find a d44 up here , just not common anymore as they are in regions where older model jeeps ( CJ & YJ , for example) , since the trend is new models and leasing is popular.
For us old jeep owners , we are constantly faced with buying on eBay or Craigslist and having to work out price and shipping on heavy items such as engines , trans, t-cases and axles.
A Dana 35 will go for less if found , but the shipping will just kill the purchase and in the end , less desirable . Unfortunately , my only way to upgrade too would have to be finding a d44 from any jeep , such as an older cherokee 1983 and older and cutting down the axle tubes and re-perch for proper leaf or coil spring mount as applicable. In the 10308 zip , you would have to call or go online to recyclers for inventory as anywhere close just dosen't have or keep these parts or even get them as the jeeps just aren't available. The only jeeps that are ever junked are xj's as I haven't seen many YJ's locally on the street or junk yards in at least 5-10 years . We just don't see them anymore here. I have seen 2 or 3 CJ jeeps in the last ten years and only one was resorted. The other cj(s) I have ever seen had neede restoration or repair VERY DESPERATELY.
Not long ago , I was on the kick of trying to locate old salvage dj5 jeeps to convert to a CJ , I guess some one who owns a salvage yard that buy them for project build are driving up the cost .
NYC has strict laws for auto recyclers that a vehicle cannot sit in its yard more than six months before it is to be crushed and recycled. That means they disappear if even found by sales to other yards or just crushed for $$$ in iron. It's disheartening. If my Chrysler 8.25 broke , I would have no choice but to pressure wash the carrier and tubes after disassembly and start from the case with a ring and pinion , new bearings and shims , cluster gears and shims. Just all new from right to left and all in between. But I consider the 8.25 a good candidate for rebuild or swap in our case . Trouble is for your TJ , it would be better to get a YJ rear for easier install but most YJ axles were d35. Rare anyone got a d44 in a heavy tow package. If you did decide to get a 8.25 rear if Cherokees are plentiful in salvage for you , you would have to re-perch it to fit your leafs and the companion flange may be different so the u-joint may have to be upgraded and drive shaft refitted. Of course rear brakes are to be dealt with as well . Sorry our availability and prices are not helpful to you , but I'm hoping for you that locally they will treat you better as in your area , jeeps are very common as you well know and parts , I hope , are more plentiful.
I have been told more than once that if I am to buy a CJ 5 , I should look down south . Been told various places such as Alabama , Tennessee , and just a lot of southern states as they are still very popular. Hoping this helps and I really believe that if possible , an upgrade would be better.
i will respect if you decide to find another d35 since they probably are more available and cheaper . Less trouble to install as that's what you got now. Just hope it's in good shape , wouldn't want you to end up doing it all over again. Really , best of luck and always looking when I can for such parts for that hot ticket upgrade or replacement too . Greg

Differential Unit Problems of Jeep Wrangler

1 Differential Unit problem of the 2021 Jeep Wrangler

Failure Date: 03/27/2021

2021 rubicon 88 days old 2097 miles. 3/27/2021. Purchased 1/3/2021. Dash warning intermittent service axle locker system. I have never used my axle lockers once. Came on after riding up a very short dirt hill in 4l after shifting back to 4h then my dash began flashing intermittently service axle locker system on and off. Had to drive it home this way with the alert flashing on ans off. Got into driveway and differential tried to lock itself in my driveway while backing and filling into garage. This is dangerous. If differential locks at 70mph on freeway or going down step winding road unexpectedly fear this could cause an accident. At dealer now. Replaced rear axle assembly. Still broken, throwing codes, dealer trying other things. Please know not isolated situation. Many Wrangler owners from 2018 to 2021 posting this up. According to jl Wrangler forum, fca does not have a fix yet. This should not be happening on a $55k vehicle in first 90 days! several owners on 3rd and 4th axle replacements. There are 30 pages of complaints on this. . Read more...

2 Differential Unit problem of the 2016 Jeep Wrangler

Failure Date: 12/15/2020

I have gone through over 4 sets of mud terrain tires over the last two years that are unevenly worn and no one knew why. Most recently, the rear right tire had a sidewall gash and had a flat tire, we began smelling smoke and ended up taking the Jeep into brakemasters and was told the entire rear differential was failing and falling apart. We had the rear diff replaced, brakes, rotors and paid $5000 out of pocket and as I was driving from home to tucson the other day to my maternity appointment, the back right tire began screeching while not braking and began sizzling and burning with oil coming out from the tire. I immediately stopped at the nearest brakemasters and they said that an entirely new rear differential is needed. Not only could the Jeep have caught on fire with this safety issue but I kept losing control of the steering in the middle of the city with a 2 year old and one on the way. I am hoping to see some sort of resolution on this and to be communicated with other Jeep owners of this safety issue.

4 Differential Unit problem of the 2013 Jeep Wrangler

Failure Date: 06/05/2020

I was driving on city street driving 25 mph , when my Jeep Wrangler ceased immediately. Differential leaked fluid. I have also noticed the rear brake passenger side leak which I believe connects to differential. I brought it to a technician attention when I took my car to a recall and mentioned its not a problem. I had my children in my car. Could have caused a fatal accident. Lucky I was not on a highly driving 70 mph.

5 Differential Unit problem of the 2019 Jeep Wrangler

Failure Date: 09/17/2019

The front wheels shimmy at freeway speeds when hitting a slight uneven seam or joint in the road bed, the dealer put a dampener on but the issue is still there, just not as pronounced. The drive train / transmission / differential has "locked up" violently stopping the Jeep, this has happened twice so far but I have only had it for a few months. Both times I was moving slowly forward in drive just leaving a parking space on the side of the street. I put it in park, then back in drive and it moved normally. It sounds like metal on metal when it happens and is very sudden!.

6 Differential Unit problem of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler

Failure Date: 11/16/2018

7 Differential Unit problem of the 2014 Jeep Wrangler

Failure Date: 10/19/2018

I noticed there is a leak from my oil filter housing, I could t tell why in my under carriage I had oil going back near transmission followed the leak up to the oil filter housing I am not sure if it is cracked but at only 49k this should not be happening and I have read on many threads this is any issue this should be a recall and covered under power terrain warranty. I noticed it because I was checking my differential fluids and saw the mess of oil spraying all over my under carriage.

8 Differential Unit problem of the 2008 Jeep Wrangler

Failure Date: 10/07/2018

Front axle (differential) oil seals are leaking lube oil quickly. There are leak reported issues with these dana 30; dana 35; and my own rubicon's dana 44 axle. The axle seals are leaking lube oil from the axle ends. Again, this is happening to my '08 Jeep Wrangler rubicon and also to many other Jeep Wrangler models from 07-17 years as well as reported and confirmed by other owners of Jeep jk and jku models 2017, 16, 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, 09, 08, 07 models. There should be a goverment recall since many of these Jeeps are experiencing the same axle leak issues as reported. Unfortunatedly, fca does not cover this simple power train fix since my vehicle it's out of warranty.

9 Differential Unit problem of the 2012 Jeep Wrangler

Failure Date: 01/08/2018

On Jan 8th I was heading home on union road in the middle of rush hour traffic. A car infront of me decided to turn left so I had to stop when I proceeded to go around him I heard a loud bang and my Jeep stopped dead. When I tryed to put the car in drive, reverse, or neutral the Jeep didnt move. Had I have been going the speed limit or got on the thurway in which was 200 ft away where I was headed to go home my Jeep would have flipped from the sudden lock up of my wheels. I could have died. There was no warnings, noises, ect. It just snapped. Not only the 1500 dollar repair the technicion told me that there had to be a defect in the differential. I would like Jeep to contact me 7162009019 on this matter I feel that I should not have to pay for this thank you susan heater.

10 Differential Unit problem of the 2015 Jeep Wrangler

Failure Date: 09/30/2016

After noticing a accumulation of fluid under my vehicle I took the car to a mechanic who mentioned that the seals on the rear axel were both leaking. I took the car to the dealership where they verified that both seals were leaking and that the differential cover was also leaking. They replaced the seals and resealed the differential cover, but noted that I was responsible for replacing the fluid in the differential. The vehicle had not been taken off road, outside of usual driving down unpaved roads.

15 Differential Unit problem of the 2003 Jeep Wrangler

Failure Date: 10/15/2004

The rear differential on my 2003 Jeep Wrangler is getting water in it from just driving in the rain. The dealer fixed the worn ring and pinion and bearings from the water damage but they did not fix the main problem, which is the water getting in the rear differential. About a month later the same bearing problem started occurring. Daimlerchrysler is refusing to fix the problem again because they say it is customer abuse. I have done nothing but drive the Jeep on the road. This is not customer abuse. Daimlerchrysler will find any excuse not to honor their warranty.

16 Differential Unit problem of the 2003 Jeep Wrangler

Failure Date: 10/12/2003

We bought a 2003 Jeep Wrangler sport 4x4 in January 2003. The dealership had put a 3" lift and 32" tires on the Jeep prior to it being sold. We purchased it directly from the showroom floor. Three weeks ago the rear differential went out in the Jeep. First we were told that the repairs would not be covered under warranty because the lift voided it. After advising a Chrysler representative that the dealership put the lift on the Jeep, they said the size of the tires caused the damage and I informed the representative that the dealership made all modifications to the Jeep prior to our purchase. I was told I'd have to contact the dealership to see if they would stand behind the vehicle warranty. We're in texas now, the dealership we purchased the vehicle from is in washington. We went round and round between the dealerships with the one in washington saying the vehicle was covered under warranty and the one in texas saying, "no". After 3 weeks, it was determined that the damage was caused by 'misuse/abuse' by the vehicle being taken off-road and a stick hitting the plug on the rear axle causing the fluid to leak out. The Jeep broke down the day after it was taken off-road. Clearly not enough time for any fluid to leak out, especially with no sign of leakage once it was parked, and the vehicle was driven less than 60 miles the next day. Besides, this was the first time the vehicle had been taken 'off-road' since we purchased the vehicle. I believe we purchased a vehicle that had a faulty rear axle and the dealerships have found another way to pick the consumers pockets without standing behind a vehicle warranty.
