I don't have anyone currently in line for it. What I've been doing is just having the current person (that would be you) hold on to it until the next one in line comes up, as long as it's not too long.

Also, not that it's any help now (though @mtbtim and @infamousRNR 's video is just as good), I did find the instructions under my work bench over the weekend. Lol!

Second truck is also done now! Everything looks to be holding. So nice having brakes again.

A word of advice to anyone going down this road, you don't need the seal puller, but you absolutely need a seal driver.

Will hold onto the tool for the next person, or whenever you want it back. Please drop me a PM so I get notified, just in case I miss a post here.

Thanks so much @weekendclimber !

Hey Scott, I have to say you're a better man than me. I've had bad experiences when lending things out so I've had a policy for a long time to not do it. With that said, I do occasionally lend out things to trusted friends but I'd rather not. Shit happens, people do stupid things and things get messed up or broken. Then you're left with asking you're friend or a total stranger for compensation and I'd rather not have to do that.

Duane, who makes the axle tool, sent me a picture of one of his tools that was destroyed. The guy forgot to remove the snap ring above the outer retainer. When he went to drive the axle out of the bearing, the snap ring held firm and he bent the shit out of the tool. I'm willing to help out total strangers by inviting them over my place to make a video but I know I wouldn't ship my tools to them and hope I get them back in good shape and not broken.

I do think the PayPal deposit is a great idea if you do go through with this. This way they are motivated to treat the tool with care and send it back to you or the next guy.

I believe I am that guilty party you are talking about. I watched your video, set about the work, and somehow still forgot to remove the stupid clip. The tool bent like hell. I have to give props to Duane, even though it was 100% my screw-up, and I even admitted as much after he reminded me to double check the clip when I emailed him, he still sent me a replacement part at no cost to me!

I was one of the first people to order the tool I guess and he had since moved to a thicker metal plate and a welding jig that made much cleaner welds. The original tool would have been able to do the bearing job no problem if I hadn't been such an idiot and forgotten the clip. The new one could probably do the job even with the clip left on!

Anyways, I was reading this thread and felt like I needed to both own my screw-up and pay my compliments again to the awesome creator of this specialty tool, when used properly it makes the job very easy. If you are going to buy this tool, buy it from the original creator, he stands by his tool as no china knock-off copy-cat will!

P.S. Don't forget to remove the clip! If there is anyone on this forum that needs this tool and lives in my area, PM me.

I think it's the seals that came with the kit I got from Low Range Offroad. They weren't either the old OEM or the new OEM style of seals, so I'm assuming they are just junk. You know, I enjoy wrenching on my truck so I take it in stride. Luckily I'm at home working so I don't need a 2nd vehicle for a little while, so I can do the job slow and steady

Thank you @mountainthings for helping make this work!

The tool is back in my possession. I'll have it for at least a few weeks while I have the time at home to get this job done. I also have been filming projects on the truck, so hope to add something on here soon along with @mtbtim and @infamousRNR 's excellent contribution.

That sucks! Hopefully you can just replace the seal and the retainers will be in the right spot

Here's a question I'm pretty sure I know the answer to, but thought I'd get some reassurance from others: Can I run the rear diff without oil in order to pull my truck out, turn it around, and pull it back into the garage? I wouldn't be going more than 5 mph, and most likely less, so I'm thinking it would be okay. It's a tight fit in my garage, so I usually park to one side to give myself enough space to work.

Have you already drained the diff? And, why? You can do the axle service by jacking one side at a time and not have the lube drain out.
