Your thoughts on Axle seals

Been wondering about putting on Axle seals on my TJ. I am concerned about sand, mud, and muck getting in the axles and tearing up the axles. I am curious the thoughts from others here on the WF...........

thanks in advance,

The more I know, the less I understand.................

i like outer axle seals.

before I had them my axle tubes would pack up with mud/sand and when I'd change a shaft I'd need to pop the cover and clean mud&sand out of the tubes before putting the new shaft in.
now ,with the axle tube seals ,if I need to change a shaft on the trail where I cant clean out the tube, i wont get mud in the diff.

the only bad thing about them is that I cant tell when my inner seals are leaking
