Re: Rear Output Shaft Seal/Dust Cover

I replaced the seal/dust shield yesterday, not too hard other than climbing under the truck a bunch. Before I put the new seal in I spent some time looking for something to use as a plug in case the rear drive shaft fails and has to be removed. Ultimately I found that a butane can I refill lighters ...

Maybe we should get them to add a Power Wagon class. Course looks simple enough.

Re: Battery question

This is what I have: 120 watt foldable solar panel on a frame that fits on my Trac Rac rack. The frame breaks down and is stored in a length of 3' ABS pipe on the rack. The controller is removable and stored in a duffle with the cables and stuff. Very low profile, wind proof, and helps keep the ARB ...

Re: Rear Output Shaft Seal/Dust Cover

I saw on You Tube somebody used an ABS pipe cap to drive the seal in. Don't have any 3/4 " drive sockets, but I can always do what I did when changing out my steering box- went to Harbor Cheapo Tools, bought the big socket set, used the one socket I needed, then returned the set. I have also used a ...

Re: Rear Output Shaft Seal/Dust Cover

"This is a great deal on the miller/mopar seal driver for this specific seal"
The $20.00 shipping is a bit hard to take. I probably will make something to use.
Amazon has a decent price on a SKF seal

Rear Output Shaft Seal/Dust Cover

I noticed that the dust cover is cracked and figured I ought to replace it before the seal fails. Seems like a relatively easy job, but I wanted to check and see if any one has done it and if there are any tips or tricks I should know.

Re: xfer case linkage

Guys that have had vibration/noise complaints, what kind of rod ends did you use? The cheap ones without liners, steel ball on steel rod end? Or did you pay up for ball joints with Teflon liners? I'm not sure. There was a write-up here a few years ago with the needed parts and part numbers so I jus...

Re: xfer case linkage

You will find that a lot more noise and vibration will now be transferred into the cab without the rubber grommets to isolate the metal parts. I know that at least one person on this forum went back to the grommets because of the noise, but I put up with it because the grommets failed at a bad time ...

I did my own work also. Fortunately on Gen 3 trucks it's super easy to get the lights off the truck to work on them. the one gripe I had was the poor quality of the resistors included with the wiring harness from The Retrofit Source. They were big, poorly made and failed (melted) early. I bought som...

Re: Lockers in 4HI

Probably better to use low power wires from the switches to relays, then bigger wire from the relays to the lockers. The switches should be powered by a source that only comes on with the ignition and you should have a way of cutting power to the relays(eg: pulling a fuse) to avoid activating the lo...
