93 Yj Front Oil Leak

Does anyone have any writeups or YouTube Vids of replacing all oil seals up front? I bought the kit but was hoping to do a little learning first.

Sorry for questions but
Whats your skill level - learning, DIYer, capable++ ?
do you have the manual?
Are you removing the engine?
All oil seals would make other component replacement practical as you have gained access to them, (timing set, CKP, oil pump) .

What is leaking?
I would have suspects before 'tearing' it up to reseal.

Before tearing into this tell us what why etc- big picture

When I see the price of OEM I think aftermarket.
When I see the quality of aftermarket I think OEM.

I am pretty capable. I don't have a manual. I have replaced the motor once myself with a long block. I am not planning on removing the engine, I don't feel it is needed. The jeep runs fine but is leaking oil up front and therefore loses oil pressure. The motor isn't terribly old so I am not overly concerned about replacing the timing set (I know I will be right there, just unneeded expense)

I have done all the work on this myself. SOA on Waggy Springs to stretch it 4", on 37" KM2 tires, AW4 trans set to shift gears manually without clutch, and the list goes on.
