Default D 30 in a ZJ

I had to remove and replace my U-joint on the left side and I discovered that I do not have the c-clip axle but it is held on by three bolts and the bearings and axle all slide out when those bolts are removed. My question is, what keeps the junk from getting into the axle tube? There is a piece of white hard plastic that looks like it would prevent small stones from getting in, but if I'm in mud or water it looks like it'd go right into the pumpkin?

there are inner axle seals , plus for added protection you could buy a pair of these
