Spent the weekend, well Sunday, under the heep. Tore the rear locker out and replaced the air sleeve and replaced the o-rings. On an 8.8, the sleeve is pressed on inside of the bearing, which makes getting it off a pita to say the least! Had to get a large bearing puller and grind the little grabby things(technical term) down a lot to get it to fit.
Replaced most of the fluids.
Getting the "list" done before my trip to Moab in the middle of April.
Still have the exhaust manifild to replace and a new transfer case skid plate to install too.
I noticed when I pulled the passenger side axle out that the emergency brake was caked up with dried mud??? (the 8.8 has a set of cute little drum brakes on the inside of the disc rotor for the e brake.)
Wonder where that came from? Thought it was sort of sealed...
I hate mud...
The Jeep is now wheelable!!! Whoo hoo
Anyone up for a bit of snow wheeling/bashing soon? (Yankee hill?)
