I haven't had the covers off...let alone the carrier out of the white 5.9 yet since she bought it 3 years ago. They live an hour & a half one way, not driving all that way just to see if the races spun in the housing like my 44A's have. I'm pretty sure it hasn't been rebuilt yet, its bone stock and the last 2 owners were women, it hasn't been used to tow anything. My mom ain't that hard on drive line parts.
If the races haven't spun....I'll slap bearings in it & drive it & hopefully it will last long enough to long arm & 5 speed my slate 5.9. If they have....8.8 will be going under it.

Same carrier bearings bro.
Its expensive enough dd'ing a large thirsty ZJ, let alone taking on another 5.9 that needs maint first. Yes I know the alum housing is junk..I just hope THIS one isn't trashed yet to last a little longer.
