I just discovered my rear axle has a leaky pinion seal too. Can anyone link me to a replacement part? I am not sure what pinion seal I need for an M220 Dana 44 w/ LSD. Can't find anything on google.

I ordered one from them this morning. They have them in stock and would be good to have an extra in your tool kit for the trail if you're hitting them hard. Here's a copy of the invoice. You may find cheaper shipping if you call DANA and or just get one through the dealer, but I like supporting ECGS. Like I said, great people and will do anything to help out. (They broke open a new Master Install kit and overnighted me a missing bearing for my gear swap). Good luck with your leaking pinion seal. If you need any help swapping it out, please PM me.

Call ECGS and tell them what you need. Great people to deal with.

Second this. These guys have done all the axle work on my LJ which also entailed fixing what Super Trucks in Raleigh screwed up. If you need axle work done and are local go here, if you need parts order from here.

I live 20 mins from this place. And a few friends are guides for jamboree. One of them text me actually that my old jk was out there this year.

I've not been since December but ran upper rattler for the first time and really like that trail but Larry's hill is still on of my favorites.

The ruts out there can get ridiculous at times but he tends to clean it up before jamboree.

Great pics! Looks like they had a decent crowd.

Yeah, man, the turnout was really good. It sold out again. The JJ is going to try and run this one twice a year starting next year because of it.

The trails were cleaned up a lot. You can tell they came through with the dozer on some of them and did some trimming of the overgrowth. There was still plenty of pin-striping to be had though. Lol.

Finally getting around to posting my pics from the Rubicon. I made the long drive from Springfield, MO to Sacramento, CA where I stored the Jeep at a local Jeep Dealer. I was getting some parts upgraded at the same time my steering issues were being looked at.

I finally convinced Jeep Cares to approve the replacement of the steering gearbox, pump, lines, and Drag Link. I ended up installing all Steer Smarts linkage and Track Bar, which was worth every penny.

Alrighty...The Rubicon Trail.

This trail lived up to its hype and was incredible and it was well worth the drive from NC to run it. I ran it this time around with the Jeep Jamboree. I met up with some friends I ran the Jamboree in Missouri with and it was such an awesome time. My brother flew out to Sacramento to join me on this adventure, as well. The Jeep worked flawlessly. The bro and I spent the evening before running the trail swapping out the front shafts for some RCV (1 piece) shafts. Camping at Rubicon Springs was awesome! I can go on and on about how great the trial and trip to get there was, but you simply need to experience it for yourself.

The next stop is Colorado, which is next week already. I'll be running with the Jamboree again and this time around my mom will be joining me. I'm very much looking forward to that trip.

Here are some pics from the Rubicon trip and the trail (in no particular order):

We have hope!!! It was clear that silver JK had 35s and presumably lockers. After the D44s are installed we will eventually get 35s so this trail is now on the bucket list.

Thank you for the great footage. Here I don't have this possibility and so many landscapes, places, paths so great.

It makes me dream :involve:

... and to see you dismantle the front bridge on the side of a road, it's incredible, as I like to know how to do this kind of mechanics :clap:
