I broke my original ones and thought I could get new ones from the dealer. The new style ones are one piece apparently and I just want some older style two piece ones so I dont have to remove the axles to install them.

I see this as an opportunity to throw some Alloy seals on instead of those crappy stockers. Pulling the brakes, unit bearing, and shafts is not hard once you've seen it done. The problem is that most people have never pulled it off before (so its stuck on good), don't know the trick to bust it loose, or don't have air tools. Its like 10-15 minutes to get to the bare knuckle. :thumb:

I just swapped out my axles for tj ones and it was a biotch and I dont wanna do it again anytime soon. There wasnt much dirt in the tubes before and I would like to keep out rocks, gravel, and some mud if I could. And that pic is of my not destroyed one.

Those plastic seals will only keep larger debris out of the tubes. Since they don't actually "seal" anything, mud will be allowed into the tube.

I wheeled for a long time without mine.... You really don't need them but if you're serious about sealing out junk, then get teh alloy's
