Do y'all think I broke anything

I have a 2015 Cherokee trail hawk, and today I had a slight issue... kinda. In the apartment complex I live in, the parking lot area is slightly higher than the road, and there isn't a smooth ramp transition into it. That means If you're in the parking lot, there is a decent drop off into the road. I typically take it slow although it's not too big. Anyways, today when I was pulling out, my car seemed to be "stuck" in first gear, so I hit the gas harder and bam, it shifted up like 2 gears and I was flyin. Next thing you know I hit that drop off going much, much faster than I would normally do it. Also, right once you leave the parking lot there is a super sharp left turn than right turn. I ended up having to do all of this much faster than I normally do. To make it worse I had a big bag of rocks in the back that kept flying around. Don't worry, there were no cars or Anyone that I came close to, this is a super quiet road. The reason this happened is because I'm used to driving a challenger which shifts a lot different and smoother and quicker. I don't know why I wrote so much, but do any of you think I could have causend damage from hitting the drop off and taking those turns too fast? I know most people complain that these cherokees are "bad fiat chassis" but it's still a jeep nonetheless, and it should be tough enough for this right?

Re: Do y'all think I broke anything

Dropping off is much better than hitting an abrupt incline or step up because then you can knock alignments out, break tie rods etc. How does it drive? does it pull left or right? Do you notice any noises, leaks etc...? If not then I would say its probably ok...these Jeeps will take quite a bit of abuse...within reason...maybe to be safe either look underneath of the vehicle or take it to the dealer and have them check it out. Just my two cents.
