I've had a leaky rear axle seal for quite a while now, but neglected fixing it because I had no idea what part # the seal was.

I bought the axle used, under the impression it was a "Dynatrac Trail Series". I contacted Dynatrac to try to get answers. I was hard for Scott to pinpoint exactly the part I needed, with no record of sale or invoice. He gave me a part # he thought it could possibly be. After looking up the part number, it turns out the seal/bearing is for a Ford 9". I would have never guessed.

Not sure if I needed to or not, but I removed the old race. It was not easy. I ended up using a puller and a cold chisel. Next time, unless I hear otherwise I will leave the old on in place.


New seal pressed on

Hope the finishing touches come together nicely on the cage. I won't be able to make it over the hill today to help out. Can't wait to see some pics.

My AtoZ cage addition arrived. Great product!

Install was pretty straight forward. I had to re-notch a few of the bars, but everything went together well.

Well I put the Jeep back together and pulled out of the garage. I rolled my driver window up to find a shattered window!


The only thing I can think of is a hot spark from welding found it's way inside the door, and stuck to the glass. Would that do it? I even had the door protected (so I thought).

Does anyone know where I can get inexpensive replacement glass?

Thanks, I'm happy with it!

No biggie on the window. I recently ordered a power window kit, so I was gonna be inside the door anyway.

I actually just found one for $50 shipped, from Morris 4X4 Center.

I really like this mod man. You might have me rethinking the weld in. Where are the pics of your lower section and the dash?

what is the thinking behind the center hoop that is welded to the factory cage? more head room? is there also a supporting "x" behind it?

I realized I hadn't taken any when I was posting the others. I'll get some up!

It was pretty straight forward though, cut a hole, and shove it through!

I wasn't the designer, but here are my thoughts on it. Like you mentioned, head room, strength, and it has a good look!

At the moment there is no "supporting X", but this thing is far from done! More to come on the cage in the future. Any thoughts on design?

ha ha, you know JeepForum is out of control when noone blinks at someone calling a TJ stretched and rolling 40s a "sleeper" and a "stocker".

Beautiful work, man!
