Rear Pinion Seal

My rear pinion seal is leaking a little and I'm thinking of replacing it soon. How hard is this to do and what am I in for.

95YJ, 4" Procomp suspension lift, 33x12.50 pro comp MT's, custom square tube bumpers, custom interior, body lift and disconnects coming soon along with who knows what else.

95, 4" susp. lift, 33x12.50 ProComp M/T's, custom square tube bumpers, , energy bushings, 4.0 HO, everything stock, 1" or 2" body lift and who knows what else coming soon.

It's fairly easy, but if we're talking about a Dana 35, there's a one time use crush sleeve involved here. You need to replace it then torque to spec. In a pinch, you can just reuse the existing crush sleeve. But I'm talking trail/get home kind of repair. I'm not sure what the torque spec is on the pinion nut of a Dana 35. But don't be surprised if it's over 200 ft lbs. I know my Dana 60s are like 260 ft lbs.
