Outer axle seals?

I'm looking at this truck to buy and I notices on the outer sides of the axles what looked to be the seals were separated from the housing. Kind of has me worried the front diff may have dust or sand in it. I don't really know much about the front axle set up so I was wondering if anyone could fill me in on if its common and the price of repair. Otherwise the truck is immaculant and everything checks out. Thanks in advance!

I'd bet 90% of 03-07 250's are ... I just cut mine off last weekend. It'll be OK unless you plan on doing some serious muddin.

they have an updated seal that locates inside the axle tube vs the outer axle shaft

Just because I have a banner that states "Moderator"
does not mean you can't argue with my opinions !

Thanks guys! I called my buddy up who has an 06 and when he looked he said one was on and one was off so figured it was a common thing.

that's why they updated the dust seals ..


more important is to make sure the auto lock hubs work when commanded

Thanks, it dosent sound like its too bad of a thing. Do you think you could just silicone glue them in there? I don't plan on going in any mud really unless I have to

I wouldn't worry about it. Most straight axle trucks dont even have that outer seal.
