To be honest with you it really doesn't matter if the whole jeep blew up, I have less then a thosand into it Not that I would want that to happen.

I understand that this is a job that requires alot of knowledge but it's by no means hard.........

I have no don't you could do it, anyone can do anything if they are so inclined to. However it is weather you have the proper tools to do the job. The general idea is to shim up the new gears with what came out shims, this will give you a good starting point. so this being said if you do not have a set of set up bearings(makes it so much easier to do at home) you need a press, well need a press anyway, but will need to press the bearings on and off which ever or however many times as needed. then remember that once you start to crush the sleeve you better be good other wise you will need a new one if you have to reset.
Possible search you tube for some vids on it i guess.

Well I found this and I think I'm set. http://www.pirate4x4.com/tech/billavista/Gear_Setup/

I'm going to take the old bearings and make set up bearings out of the old ones. And this axle does not have a crush sleeve....I wish it did because it would make it easier. There is a couple things I don't understand but I'll ask those questions when I get to them.....I think I got this shit whipped..
