    Okay so I finally swapped gears on the JL...

    Everything went ok... I did learn that the front and rear diff covers are not the same. I need to order a front I guess.

    So my new Pinion is marked +6 and the old pinion is marked .58 WTF does that mean LOL. When I Knocked out the inner pinion race I checked the shim stack and it was .48....then I subtracted the plus six and installed the inner race.

    The pattern came out great...so I put everything back together.

    I tried to pull the bearing off like the front but the roller cage was destroyed and had to cut the bearing race off.

    I Pulled the magnet off then the engagement plate

    Pressed on the new bearing....I used a hole saw to press it on, the bearing has a thin race and hole saw's work great for this.

    So today I did a few short drives to heat cycle the ring and pinions and will drive it to work the next three days and should be good to go.

    Nice work. I have that same bearing puller. Sometimes it does catch on the cage. But still works amazingly.

    It's nice but...The TS is probably just as good.... I haven't tried adjusting it yet, it might turn out to be better...or not.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve 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.
