Re: Any tips for pulling an axle housing?
I don't know if you have one or if the parts stores rent them, but you might want to consider a nut splitter/buster. Goes on a nut and you use a wrench to turn it untilthe nut snaps in half.
To be honest I've never had a problem breaking loose u bolt nuts with a some PB Blaster and a breaker bar, just takes some time and muscle.
The Waggy axle itself mounts pretty much the same as a CJ, just different size nuts here and there.
Oh, I don't know how your loading or getting it home, but it might be easier to take at least the rotors and calipers off. Takes a good bit of weight off without them. Just make sure to carry some allen wrenches, a spindle nut wrench, snap ring pliers, and a couple of small screw drivers.
