the dust seal just hangs out. even if you put it back in, it will come loose again. once you get through guzzles service on the autolock hub and needle bearing, put the hub and locker back on and unhook the vacum line near the frame rail. clean the end off and suck on it. if you cant suck air through the vacum line, you've got a good seal. if you can suck air through there, you need to check the axle seal (on the knuckle - not the dust seal that is hanging out), the yellow o-ring on the hub, or your locker. you'll also know that you're not getting a good seal if you turn on the 4x4 when the blower motor is running and it will divert the air to the defrost. there are a whole bunch of write ups on addressing that problem.
i hope it goes well. it probably is going to start snowing out there soon.
by the way- are you cleaning your own oil? you should put yourself on our WVO map. we don't have anyone near the Tetons!
