axle seals dana 30

Anyone have these or think they are worth it? I go through a lot of mud and water seems like they would be a good buy, what ya think?

A friend has them he has less water in his axle after long deep water crossings than I have.

So does that mean you just change your diff fluid more frequently?

On normal water crossings these seals are ok. But if you stand for a long time in deep water or mud because you got stuck they aren´t 100% tight.

I change my front diff fluid every time when I was wheeling i deep water and deep mud. My buddy does the same.

Lift is already on it's way, I ordered it a while ago but it got hung up in shipping, should be here Monday or Tuesday. Sad thing is I won' t get a chance to put it on for a couple weeks, but it's coming.

I would take a look at the diff fluid every time I was in deep mud or deep water. Water or mud in this fluid isn´t a good thing.
Changing this fluid needs 3-4 minutes with the drain and fil plug. And I´m really sure that everything is ok with it.
1.2L of mineral 80W-90 doesn´t cost very much. I bought a 80L barrel last christmas. On that way one fill costs less than 4-5 $.

haha sure thing I'm can and am going to put it on except I'm going to be out of town for the next week and then I have my weekends full until mid November, but I will get impatient and put it on during the week I guarantee it. I won't be able to look at sitting there and not on my jeep.

Nicolas, what do you mean "Changing this fluid needs 3-4 minutes with the drain and fill plug"

I change my fluid quite a bit I was just wondering if installing those seals would help keep crap out of my axle.

What lift did you order?
A simple short arm lift like OME is intalled in 2-2.5 hours if you have a service lift in your garage.

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

One day the rear. The other day the front.
That looks a bit ugly fpr one day. But you can still drive the Jeep.

believe it or not she's smart enough, had huskies and malamutes all my life and this one is by far the smartest. I wouldn't be surprised if she was home right now doing calculus problems while crapping in the toilet.
