My passenger side rear axle seal keeps leaking. Anyone here ever replaced the seal? If so, is it hard to do (ha)? Any info would be great since the Jeep dealer out here can't fix a wrangler.

Your dealer can't replace an axle seal?

What axle? D35 or D44? It makes a difference.

It has a D35. And yes, the Jeep dealer did this.

Remove the shaft, pry out the old seal, drive in the new one.

Jack up the axle on the side you'll be working on the drain the diff lube to the opposite side.

Try some RTV or silicone sealer on the seal edge to help it slide better where it goes into the axle.

Lube up the rubber seal before you replace the axle shaft.

These really aren't that hard, especially on a D35.
