Ohs nos!!! The rear axle yoke seal is leaking on the jeep! It left maybe 10 drops on the garage floor. I guess it's about time. It's been drip free for many months now. Most CJ guys would be jealous of my drip-less rig, but not you guys eh? Got yur stuff squared away I'm sure

Okay so Matt probably has a leak free jeep too, so he's out of the joke


Cheers!

Autozone had a seal in stock, so I bought it and put it in.

The offending seal

Yoke slipped off with my fingers, very surprised!

My favorite way to remove seals. Pound a hole in the seal with a screw driver and pry. Easy as pie.

Pull some fluid out of the diff with a syringe so it won't wet the seal surface.

Add sealer so it will lower the chances of a leak

Pound in seal. Always the hardest part it seams

Slide yoke on and douse the threads and back of the nut with sealer

Torque with the impact gun until it stops or until the rotational pinion torque is the same. In my case, it stopped (~250 FtLb from a 600 lb gun or so)

Wha-lah!

Now to add more fluid tomorrow when the sealer has set.

Cheers!

Wow, nice detail. Makes it look like I could do it. I stratigically park on different pieces of cardboard. I remove the cardboard before anyone stops by so it "looks" like a leak free jeep. LOL

Pics are great! Thanks again.

Edit: I see you doused it with sealer...

Deer Season on weekends and work during the week, but I've been lurking...

Also...on another note...Jim, made me a tie rod and drag link I will install when I get my Jeep off the ranch in a few weeks. It's awesome!

Hey, not sure I congratulated you on your wedding! Congrats! Enjoy your time with your new wife and then...if you two are going that direction a family

But the right word at the right time... "Hey, give me a little hug!" That's the difference between lightning and a harmless lightning bug!
