No pics for you, but you will need to remove the axle, so wheel off, hub bearing off, 36mm nut that holds axle in place on hub bearing off remove axle then replace the ujoint. You can do the whole thing in less than an hour if you have everything you need on hand when you start.

There is a write up on it. THe trick to popping the hub loose with a socket is clearly shown.

Easy job, no seal to replace, just don't drag the axle stub across the seal.

YJs are old. Everything you have to fix has already been done and likely recorded in the FAQs,
