Wow kjeeper10 I'm now enlightend, nice writeup . I run a JE REEL fr DS , but still good to know. Do know were I can get an upholstered work bench like in writeup? lol...
I did replace my front (Adams)!but have a rear back up. Once (if) this one goes. I will swap in the spare and try to rebuild it
Looks easy enough ...
Somebody mentioned this ... If only a manufacture implemented dual a rzeppa's on a stronger shaft .. We'd be golden. These joints hold angle well and won't vibe like a u-joint.
Thanks for sharing the link kjeeper! Makes me feel very comfortable about running the stock DS. Considering I will only be putting about 6-7000mi per year, I should be able to get a good ~5 years it if it!

I was able to get ~17000 on my stock 2010 front with a TF 4" lift before the boot gave out... but I was light on the off-roading. Just keep an eye on the angle and how much the boot gets pinched while sitting at ride height, because off-roading will most likely cause it to pinch sooner. If you don't change it out and don't make a point of checking it weekly, just listen for the "click." When you start hearing a clicking noise from underneath, then most likely the boot is torn and the grease has been thrown out.

Wow that's pretty cool. Filed for future reference. I still think I want to go aftermarket DS even though it means dealing with pinion stuff. I want to get the Evo skid setup that goes in that area and exhaust spacers and Y pipe replacements both interfere with it from what I've read.
