About Axle Housings

The Jeep axle housing is the outer enclosure of the axle shaft. It protects the inner shaft from damage and may contain lubricant. On rear wheel drive the axle housing includes the differential gears in the centre of the axle.

The axle housing may be a bulky cast structure or a mix of cast and steel tube.

If the axle is damaged this can lead to malfunction of the whole axle assembly. The Jeep axle housing functions to protect the axle and associated components by shielding them from impact and preventing water, dirt and dust from penetrating these parts. 

The axle housing can suffer from general wear and tear and will need to be replaced if it rusts, cracks or splits. The Jeep axle housing is specifically manufactured for the make and model of your vehicle.

Jeep trivia

  • The original Jeep was designed in only two days! The prototype took 75 days to be built and then delivered to the US army that had commissioned the vehicle.
  • Nobody knows where the name 'Jeep' comes from or why it was used. One theory is that it's a play on the phrase General Purpose Vehicle (GP), while others maintain that Jeeps are named after a character in the Popeye cartoon, Eugene the Jeep.
  • The Jeep is the only vehicle to have won an American Purple Heart medal. The award was given after a Jeep was the first US presence on the beach at Guadalcanal. The Jeep was only slightly damaged, with some bullet holes in the windscreen, but General Eisenhower called the Jeep one of "the three tools that won the war."
  • There were a lot of car firsts in the 1963 Jeep Wagoneer. Dubbed by Jeep as the first-ever luxury SUV, the Wagoneer came with independent front suspension (a first for a 4x4), as well as the first overhead-cam six-cylinder truck engine.
  • There's a whole sport called Jeeping, and it's been running since 1953. It's a trek that usually takes place along the Rubicon Trail in the US, and 'Jeep Jamborees' are now so popular that Jeep even attends the events, often bringing new concept vehicles to show off.
