    Thank you for your feedback. Iím trying to figure out what is half way down the tube. My guess was that its the plastic axle guides. Pulled out 2, i guess there could be more? EB3C1B22-F756-4918-B036-383B05D427FD.jpg

    Honestly, Iím not sure. Iíve pulled my front shafts twice and rears once. I didnít run into the problem you are experiencing. Mines a sport so I know slightly different.

    Thank you all again for all the feedback. It was very helpful. I Started working on installing the shaft again and again there was an obstruction. The end result was that the ring that was at the center fo the axle tube, was part of the shaft seal. Having seen that and seeing the write up on the shaft seal install, I opted for taking my Jeep to Adams Driveshaft and letting them do this work. This is above my skill set (yes Iím a chicken)

    More questions.

    I put everything back together, on both the passenger and the driver side. The ball joints came off easy, the new Dynatrac ball joints went on easy. I still had to fight the axle on the driver side to remove it. The same thing happened on the driver side. Part of the seal followed the shaft out of the tube. As I mentioned, I’m taking my rig to a shop to get new seals installed. The distance is 21 miles. I’m only driving it that day, and leaving it parked till then. Does anyone know if there is the potential for the diff. fluid to spill out of the axle tubes in the time it will take to get to the shop 21 miles away? I live in Las Vegas and it’s still cool during the a.m. if that makes a difference. Has anyone run into this issue? Thank you in advance for any insight.

    Shove a good sized rag in the tube and you'll be fine.

    The axle shaft is in the tube. The whole assembly is completely put together. I was thinking of leaving the axle shafts out, but I wanted the shop too see the whole thing completely assembled.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
