    You talking about the carrier bearing? Not following on center support.

    Photo of the whole thing below. The rear propeller shaft was built from scratch (thicker gage steel, smaller diameter, and longer splines). Got new u-joints all around, but kept the rear/front flanges, carrier bearing, and front propeller shaft. It was built at a driveline shop in my area.

    Now to remove the rear drive shaft, all I need to do is disconnect the rear flange and pull it out. I don't need to separate it at the u-joints and carry a u-joint tool to put in a spare; or carry a spare of the entire rear driveline to avoid the pain of u-joint disconnection/connection. I'm going to have him build me a cheaper spare too. To do a trail repair it will be four bolts, pull out, grease, put spare in, four bolts, torque, and done. 20210409_122839.jpg

    Nice! I’m looking for a new bumper where I can use my current hitch. Can you use it with this bumper?

    I put a new grill in today and a new stereo and wheels in last week. I’ve had this 2012 DCSB for 6 years. Just paid it off and fixing things that were going bad or didn’t work.

    Installed my 2" McNeal fenders today after repairing them from being damaged in shipping. They actually went on fairly easy with minimal trimming. Still need to fab up a bracket for the bumper cover so that it lines up with the outside of the fenders than trim it to match.
