What part of the axle is this?

Not sure if i should post this here but...Mods feel free to move it if its not

Just got back home wheeling and heard a rattle sound underneath when i pulled in my garage.Wow i didnt even hear it when i was on the freeway going 75 MPH.

Anywoo, anybody knows what this part is called and a part item would be great.Its located behind the front passenger wheel.Thank you kindly.

the round part on the outside is just a cap. you can pull these off and the u-joint pops out. there not that bad to change as long as you can get the caps out.

Thanks Gmuddy!! Video is always easier than reading a manual.

Well i called the Jeep dealer and they told me that they dont sell the Ujoint seperately.Luckily Quadratec does.

Your local NAPA or other parts store will have that u-joint.

That would be less $$ than paying shipping and such....just sayin'
