You don't need to pull the pig. BUT you need a new seal. They should have a press fit so that one is bad.

Easiest way it to use a seal driver and a LONG handle to go through the knuckle. If you can't get in on it that way, then yes your going to pull the pig and do it on the bench. Which means pulling the passenger side as well.

yeah, theyll go anywhere, but the drivetrain sucks. the D28 ttb axles break under light wheeling. its in need of a solid axle swap up front and a 9inch out back..

I took mine offroad a lot..but never muddin. It was great for getting into tight places like a CJ ...but more practical. (I carried a 600 pound cast iorn stove in the back of mine once)
