Dana 60 mad4x4 outer axle seals

Im in the process of rebuilding my dana 60, but it doesnt seem to have an outer seal and the tube is full of ****. after looking i guess the 95 didnt come with one. I stumbled upon the mad4x4 seal they make. Has anyone had any good or bad experiences with them? is it a waste of money, or any better products?

they used to place a seal on the driveshaft that was intended to keep the crap out of the axle tube ,, they always fell of and didn't do a very good job anyway

then ford updated the seal to go inside the outer tube and problem solved

however It won't fit the older years and I think I would be interested in the seals you found

He used the updated INNER seals, not the outer ones.

To the OP, if you are really worried about crap getting in the axle tub, just wash it out when you wash your truck

Ok. I was just hoping by now with how popular the dana 60 is with the psd someone could have come up with a product that works. I was surprised it didnt have an outer seal on it.

there is no point to sealing that area
a seal would trap crap IN rather then out
the slide hammer action of water trapped between those 2 seal would kill your inner seal
it aint broke so dont 'fix' it

I used those seals when I built the D60 for my 95. Haven't had any issues yet but it's been less than a year. From what I have read, you have to pack them with grease frequently when wheeling.
