Ok so this is going to be done ASAP. Do you all know if there is anything else I need aside from the Axle shaft, Bearing and seal(I cant find a specific rebuild kit)? Also anyone know is C-clips are used on the KK?

so the dealership tells me there is no way of knowing which shaft I have without pulling it and measuring it.

Yes C clips are used. Assuming its just the shaft, I can't think of anything besides new bearings/seals.

A 2008 is most likely going to have the smaller axle, they used the shafts from the Durango I think it was in the 2009+ models. If you can still read the part number tag on the axle housing, you should be able to tell. Its usually on the tube somewhere.

so no sticker :( I did however learn that Jeep for some reason had a few models that had the 3.21 gears. Those models require the 41.1mm axle shaft. Mine is 3.73 so I need the 43.3mm shaft.....I hope.

I think ajohns is on to something though, the 2008 has a smaller shaft 41.1(the 3.21 gears were on the manual trans only offered in 2008) so anything newer than 2008 might be the 43.3
