Also started my detailing...citrus wash, claybar, rewash

X2 don't use an impact on it. You can use a ratchet with a cheater bar or a breaker bar. If those don't fit under the jeep you can whack your wrench or ratchet with a heavy hammer and that'll sometimes help break the nut loose. PB blaster doesn't hurt either.

Why didn't you just ask the guys at autozone to look it up? They have that info on their computers...

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

got it flatbedded to mechanic this AM. Was driving to work (running late) doing about 75-80 and heard a loud buzzing sound, lowered radio and it went away. Then my whole jeep began shaking, ridiculously. Pulled over, thought maybe had a flat tire, nope all good. Began driving again and there was the shake. Pulled over again and smelt gear oil towards the rear, didn't see any leaks, nada. Drove a little further and couldn't take it. Called AAA who isn't authorized to get me from the road I was on so got off the next exit and waited for them, and towed to my mechanic. There were no leaks where I was parked waiting, but still had that gear oil smell. 5 months with this WK and it's been flatbedded and at the mechanic 3 times. Ughs. Had my WJ with much more mileage, and less problems. Anyways 4.7 v8, just hit 68K miles, stock. Any one have any ideas? Hopefully shop is able to take a look at it today, and at least let me know what's up, otherwise waits until Monday. And I had planned on installing new headunit tomorrow night, and pulling the switch panel above and below the climate control to send to diablo to have the bulbs replaced. oh wells, those are going to be delayed.

Gear oil? Now thats interesting.... Possibly a blown diff or tc (if its 4x4)?

that's what it smelled like to me. Last time I smelled something like this was on my WJ, a quickie lube place blew out my rear axle seals adding gear oil. I might be wrong on the smell though, but they smelled similar if not the same. Yep 4x4

and the call just came in. You were right, broken differential. Shop was calling around for used one and places seem to be closed today. They are going to hold it and check around on Monday. arrggghhhsss
Any advice about this? I asked if worth it to go used, they said up to me. Also said that new is going to be few grand, and rebuilt will be over a grand.

Check rockauto.com. Looks like they've got a diff for about $300... Didn't check the specs to make sure it's the right one just at first glance. What do you have quadra trac 2?
