Im pretty sure the cv axle ends are needed to hold the front bearings together. Or at least a nut and bolt combo

I ended up dismantling the axles and just used the end with the nut and washer. Just seemed it would be stronger with that support, working great so far. Thanks for the reply.

Is your 4x4 have the auto 4x4 button?

Yes, but I've unhooked wiring harness.

Ok that works too. Just make sire its never in auto while unhooked

I was going to go through the fuse box and check out and remove anything related to 4x4. Just not sure if it will effect anything else so I'll do one at a time. I also fabricated a plug to replace where the yoke came out. Took it for a spin, everything seems solid. Guess time will tell :)
