    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.

    All 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.

    I don't have this Jeep no more.....the wife never warmed up to it like she thought she would, she never could get used to the steering and the wind moving it around. so I traded it in on a car she liked..... Oh well she's really happy now.

    Nice clean slate for aftermarket 60s and 40s. Good move.

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.
