TJ U-Joint Replacement Question
My brother has an '05 TJ with a bad u-joint. He is a rural mail carrier and uses his Jeep daily and can't have it out of commission. So, before we tear into it, is there any tricks, tips or unusual methods we need to know about first? My '77 is the latest model anything I have ever put a u-joint in. I had heard a guy talking about changing one out on a Cherokee where he had to apply a torch to melt some plastic thingy out before it would come apart. Anyway, any help/advice/tips would be greatly appreciated!!!
