Roy Eraca: what is the method when the 12 point bolts on the hub are so rusted that you cant get a socket to fit ? Remove upper and lower ball joints instead to replace everything ?? My 03 TJ = very Rusted !
san379: great vid check my video from yesterday.. front n rear tj axle shafts slapped.. cone gear worn down in the rear diff.. spider gears busted
Juancho EastEndRiders: Great DIY tutorial...!!! I definitely give a shot this weekend..!!! Question... Do i have to remove the AXLE cover to remove the shaft..?? Thanks in advance!
RANDYS Worldwide Automotive, Inc.: Tech Video Friday (on Thursday)! We found a great video to walk you through removing the front axle shafts, front axle hub bearings, and u-joints from a Dana 30 or Dana 44. This video shows just how easy it is to do this project on your own with the right tools.
FANNY SCOTT: thanks man
DirtyWade1994: Am I going to have to put gear oil in the differential after I pull out the shaft? Or do I have to pull that to change the u joint any help would be much appreciated
zip25265: So much help than you to explained it very simply good camera work and I fell like I can do that to mine now thank you
nightprowlerch19: Hi cody I'm a big fan of the wrangler star channels. I love all your homestead projects . But the DIY jeep stuff hits home for me I have a 2002 Wrangler . I know its a huge ordeal to put together quality videos but I would really appreciate it if you would do more jeep stuff if you have time I understand you're very busy and I don't want to sound like everybody else pulling you and all these directions . I wish the best to you and your family
thehashmonkey: reverse torque bolts ford is notorious for them as well
M. J. Brudenell: I am having trouble getting that plate pried away from the heat shield. I was using a large flat screw driver. Do you have any advice on how to get it worked loose?
Trip Zipper: Fffff
Richard Jefferson: Do the ends of the front axle shafts have anything locking them in place inside the differential that prevent them from sliding out when the 3 bolts are removed as shown in the video?
Chris Wooldridge: I tried mashing it with a punch too bit it was ceased. There is an easier way. Take those hub bolts and thread them in until the hole is flush with the tip of the bolt. Then take a 9/16 12pt wrench and cover the bolt. Apply the hammer a little and viola its out.
uncleben03: Cherokee XJ's were leaf-sprung in the back, not coil sprung like TJ Wranglers. Cherokee's had Dana 30's up front like the video shows, but had Dana 35, Chrysler 8.25 and Dana 44's in the rear over the years.
gunmanguns: is there any difference between this year of wrangler and the same years of Cherokee. suspension? and axle?
Autobahn No Limit: Your videos inspires me to begin working on my own vehicles - - - "Commit your work to the LORD, and then your plans will succeed." Proverbs 16:3 - Thanks Cody. Shalom.
