Does this have manual hubs or axles?

These have a small stub shaft that comes out of the front end. They are known for stripping the teeth on them. You have to take the front cover off, take the 5/16 head bolt out, slide the pin out, take the half moon retaining clip out and pull the axle

You also have to pull the wheel, caliper, rotor, wheel bearing off too.

I do have another front end I can put in it. Just don't have the time to do so. How much would that part cost to replace

22,425

I think it is somewhere around $100 for the part but the labor $$$$

125

do I pull driver or passenger side apart

22,425

It has been a while but I think passenger. You can tell by the little short shaft coming out of the front end with joint. Once you get the cover off you will know.

Ok thanks for the help

glad to help

I think I am in the same situation. I'm sure I really screwed my 4x4. The 4x4 light comes on but doesn't engage. What is the part I need to repair it?
