How To Install a New Track Bar

Please hit us up on FB - http://www.facebook.com/BleepinJeep
In this video I'll be installing a new track bar on the Bleepin Zombie
Project. The Cherokee XJ recently received a 3.5" bastard lift but we
never got around to putting a proper adjustable track bar on until now.
This track bar, is longer, adjustable, and is much beefier than the stock
track-bar. Since this jeep will be for light offroad use I didn't get the
one with the new trac bar bracket, but for a little more dough, you can get
a trackbar that also comes with a new bracket that uses a johnny joint
instead of the tie rod type end.

Replace front axle seals 1998 Dodge Ram 4X4, part 1
A detailed, step by step video showing how I replaced both front axle seals
and removed the front differential on a 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 Light Duty 4X4.
This is the very popular Dana 44 axle, used in many light trucks of that
vintage. If you have gear oil leaking from a front axle tube then this is a
Note that I recently posted a video update on a more effective method to
seat the right front axle seal. That video is here:
For a DIY seal driver, another viewer, Andy Harter, suggested using a
circular hole saw (he says about 2-2 1/4"), grinding the teeth down, and
using that rather than a large washer. It sounds like a great idea, though
I haven't tried it myself. If you do it that way, please leave a comment as
to how it worked for you. See also the video response done by Jmwtedder,
appended below, showing that technique.
