The question, if I were to replace the seal in the CAD would it be beneficial to put some seals in the pumpkin on the pass. side? I know there isn't a machined surface on the shafts so it would inevitably eat them up. I've seen other guys put (2) seals stacked in the pumpkin. I would put some gear oil in the CAD as well to keep it lubed.

I figure it would keep the fluid in for the most part. Or it would drain to the axle tube and keep it from getting back in.

On another note, I am riding at Morris Mountain this weekend in Alabama. Will be driving 260 miles just to wheel the jeep. We'll see if I make it home.
I just replaced my pass side CAD seal to. It's actually really easy and only took about an hour and a half. I used a piece of threaded rod and washers to press the seal in. There's no need to put a seal in the diff if your still running the CAD and two piece shafts. There's a write up on here showing the method of pressing the se in with the threaded rod but I'm sure you've seen it.

I'd just do the CAD seal... Like you said the inner seal may not last long due to the lack of machine surface, It's worked for years like that. a double seal is uneccessary

Thanks guys. I'll just replace the CAD seal when Spring rolls around. I've see the threaded rod and washer write-up. Seems a lot easier than when I did it. I used a steel rod that went into a 3/4" drive extension to a 3/4" drive socket. I hit that with a hammer from the driver side axle opening...dumb.

Don't forget that I have those xj shafts, so next spring you should convert over and do the CAD delete. Then you won't even need to replace the outer seal.

I forgot about this. You got the 30 spline solid shafts right?

I will snag those shafts from you this Spring. Just toss them next to the t-case you're holding for me, haha!

If anyone around East Alabama wants to wheel, a buddy and I are going to Morris Mountain ORV this weekend. We'll be there Saturday morning and leaving Sunday afternoon. Camping of course. The fee is $30 for the weekend.

If you're interested just PM me.

Got back from MM today. The jeep did well. Got a few new dings and breaks. My bumper side piece was not welded too well obviously. That or I just bash it too much with rocks. My buddy busted his shackle mount on the front of the frame, my under carriage is taken on a new shape, my pass. door will not close with out a lot of persuasion, and the end of my winch cable came out of the lug on the end that threads into the drum.

Great trip though. I'll post pics tomorrow.

It's a 3.5" Black Diamond with booms front and rear. I also have a 1" BL but the mounts have gone concave. I need to replace them and then I'll gain 1/2" of clearance back.
