It is possible to rebuild the Dana differential with it still under the truck, but we chose to fully strip the frame of our 4x4 to have it blasted and powdercoated, so the axle was removed. The first step in the teardown is to pull the locking hub caps and disassemble the locking hub, beginning with the large clip that holds the selector in place. It’s a good idea to take pictures of each step to help you remember exactly how things go back together during reassembly.
