Re: DANA 35 BEARING REPLACE
If you are going to change one of the pinion bearings you really need to replace both since you will have the pinion shaft out anyway. At the same time you will need to replace the crush sleeve to set the proper load on the pinion bearings. Your Chrysler dealer should have the crush sleeve in stock. The bearings you can just cross reference to another bearing by using the old numbers off the race and bearing. Good luck.

Are you a Mechanic? Did you pull the axles? Did you watch one of the many videos on youtube? There are tons of how to's on the net for differential rebuilding. They detail what you want to know.
You need some special tools and better understand that if it isn't done correctly it will result in a very very expensive repair. i.e. replacing the whole axle. Start with the housing spreader if you have the axles pulled and the caps off. be careful though as that differential will squash your toes if you dont catch it.
Yes,it is a self contained bearing and seal together,that is off set,the bearing runs on a different part of the axle,and the seal,this way there is no leak,and the bearing rides on a smooth part of the axle,will save money,napa has the part real cheap too,ask for a pgb bearing,it is a power glide brand,I think it is like 15.00 dollars or less
Step 1, DO NOT follow the advice in Soultion #1.
You have to remove the axles to get to the bearing. If it's a C-Clip Dana 35C differential, remove the wheels and brake calipers and the 4 bolts holding the brake backing plate to the axle tube,remove the diff cover, drain the fluid, pull the C-Clip and remove the axle with a slide hammer or with the brake rotor put back on the wheel studs backwards. Dana 35C diffs the wheels bearings will stay in the axel tubes, go to Auto Zone and rent a bearing remover. If its a Dana 35 diff, take the axle to a machine shop and have the bearing pressed off and a new seal installed the have the bearing pressed back on.
take off rear hub u have a inner and outter bearing ..change bearing dont forget to pack new bearing well with a GAA Bearing Grease...and install wheel and tighten middle nut till wheel is tight...then back it off enough that wheel turn but not too freely about half a turn back....GL
what I do is put a glob of grease in the palm of my hand and push bearing down in to grease untill you see the grease come out of the bearing or you can go to your local parts store and get a bearing grease packer. also wipe spindal with a genorus glob and put grease in between bearing in rotor. To get to the bearings all you need to do is remove tire, center cap (outter grease seal) the silver cap in the center. the cotter pin, Nut, washer outter bearing then the rotor will slip off inner bearing is in rotor still being held in by inner grease seal take seal off replace with new one pack your bearings and reverse removal procedure when retightening nut do not make tight just snug the go another turn if you go to tight you will burn your bearings real fast.
call jeep and give them last 9 digits of your vin and ask for three things -Differential Type,Gear ratio, and Track lock- They will give you 1) Dana 35 or 44 2) Gear Ratio 3.31 or 3.73 3) Track Lock - yes/no
