Hi all,

 

Can anyone tell me where I can find the exact model of my jeep? I need a new rear axle . I have two jeeps but this one seems to be a cross over of model type.

the log book says one thing but when i bring up photos on the net does not look the same. Very confusing

Neal, the photos that you have attached are smaller than postage stamps for some reason.

 

Most Jeep axles are supplied new with a metal ID tag fixed to one or two diff cover bolts. That tag usually has useful info on it to aid identification.

 

The shape of the diff cover can reveal the axle model family.

 

Brand name of the axle is usually cast into the side of the housing.

 

Find out what axle gear ratio is in your front axle, your rear axle MUST have the same ratio.

 

A photo of the axle showing the diff cover and the suspension brackets/mounts should be enough for a breaker to check with.

Very common for VIN's to swap out a 1 for an L or a B for an 8 and G for 6,

 

whats your VIN

I am a pit puzzled. My 4.7 v8 is an x reg and i think the newer shape. The 51 plate is not the older very square type but more like the square model which I thought was older than a 51 plate !! I must seem dull sorry.

Upload a better photo, say 640x480 pixels minimum, of the front headlights and grille or of the tail lights and rear screen. That's enough to tell what model it is.

 

It is a very unusual colour for a UK Grand Cherokee. Is it a grey import?

I suppose the next question is what should I expect to pay for a decent rear axle. Any idea where I can get one. Salvage companies in the past have not always been the best bet.

Oh and its a very bright electric type blue paint. As far as I can see its original paint work

while I have it in mind what sort of MPG should i get out of it. Not a lot I wouldn't think but I thought should be better than my 4.7 v8

Did not seem to clever on fuel when I brought it home. The computer said  13 mpg on motorway ? The v8 does that around town

Why do you need a new rear axle? Is the one you have already unrepairable?
