What seals/gaskets will I need to do the job? Also what have people experience been going the aftermarket route vs OEM? I like sticking to oem but they’re triple the cost

Call Cruiser Outfitters. Actually talk to a person and they can help explain EXACTLY what it is you want and need. These folks know their stuff.

That's where I buy mine as well and they helped me when I was a newb.

Sweet I’ll reach out! I should point out about a year ago it was replaced by a Toyota dealership, but they must’ve messed it up and forgot to add grease or something lol

Yep, US spec, K294 axles. I’m thinking maybe all the seals could still be good since they’re new, but haven’t done this job before.

Year?

Not worth it to open it up and not put all new seals and gaskets 😉

I mean that’s the thing, they basically are brand new haha
So is the birfields 🤷‍♂️
The seal is super easy to damage, I would want one on hand. I buy a few set at a time just to have some on hand. but to each his own.
