And your Jeep was sitting for years correct? Who else was in the game for one-piece back then besides Moser? I know my Mosers that have been in there since the mid '90s have ME embossed on the shafts

Looks like a set I just replaced in my rear end. Never could figure out who had made them or when originally instaaled, but the inner seal was leaking which had washed out the bearings. Plus the PO install had banged up the axle shaft installing the bearing, so I went with a new axle kit.

they look like the ones i have, but am not sure who made mine. I looked all over the exposed areas for some kind of identifying mark but couldn't find any. Bearings and seals are good so far so guess i'll deal with it when the time comes....
If you figure it out, please post
