Who was it that took it upon himself to "correct" the accurate information that I had provided? I am more than happy to "stir things up" when that happens.

That is completely believable. Folks who care don't post erroneous and misleading information. And then refuse to recognize the correct answer when told.

I looked this up only because I was curious.
Seal, Crankshaft Rear 4778126

I do know that there were rear main seals that required to take off the flywheel and install a one piece seal. I don't remember which vehicle it was though. Doesn't look like a Jeep from here.

OMG, this is the exact reason why I recommend that newbie 4.0 owners seek answers anywhere else but, here. We have a moderator that may have misspoke and refuses to admit to a small mistake that, everyone does on occasion.

Refuses to admit the mistake, refuses to support his claim and then refuses to discuss the issue any longer.

I replaced my two piece 1991 XJ's rear main seal 2Xs and I was never asked for a particular build date when, I purchased the seals from a dealer.

I gotta call BS on this thread.

Dealer did the change out under warranty and they said it was almost a grand because it was a one piece seal and they needed to pull the tranny.

If your '91 XJ had a 4.0L engine, it did not have a one piece seal. If it did have a one piece seal, it did not have a 4.0L engine. There are no other possibilities.

Here is the Fel-Pro parts listing for a '91 XJ. Take a look and see how many one piece rear main seals you see for the 4.0L engine.

If you insist on subscribing to the theory that "The dealer said it, so it has to be true," have at it. Dealers love folks like you. It just proves my point that dealers hoodwink those who don't know any better.

Just recently, I repaired a Ford steering column with a $12 part. Dealer swore to the owner that the part was NLA and the entire steering column had to be replaced, for $950. And they charged him $80 to tell him that lie. That's what dealers do.

And, the ironic things was, that dealer's very own parts department had the $12 part in stock. And the parts man knew what I was talking about before I even finished with the part number. "We sell those all the time," he said.
