Well first off I would advise you to install the powertrax while youre in there not after fixing it. Especially if youre not short on cash or something because you'll already be 1/2 way to instaling it when replacing the seal. Puting in the locker is simple. Remove 2 "C" clips and 1 bolt, pull the axles out about 3" and the (retaining rod--spider gear rod--whatever the thing is called) all the way out. after that the thing should just fall apart and then you clean it and make sure there aren't any shims left inside. When that's done, if you can read you can install it. I've done 2 of them and they went in with no problem. the first one from start to finish and a brake job took 3 hours being very careful and eating pizza/beer. #2 went in in an hour. They were both "crawl under the truck backyard" jobs, no shop or special tools. For the old gasket seal (diff) I use a razor scraper for that thin stubborn stuff. For the axle seal I have used everything from screw drivers to the axle it's self.

Hope any of this mess helps.

There aren't any lockers or limited slips for the 8.2" 6 lug 1/2 ton IFS front axle. Just isn't strong enough. The ARB you are thinking of is for the 9.2" 8 lug IFS front axle that the big 3/4 and 1 tons use.
