    Why or how would you be driving a TJ in FrontWD?

    Which yolk did you "break" and how?

    There is a pinion nut to remove, which should probably be replaced too btw. You will need a breaker bar or an impact wrench and a really big socket.

    Use a puller to remove the yolk , dont try to hammer it off you may damage the bearing.
    Don't hammer on the yoke to get it started when installing or you will hammer the pinion into the ring gear...

    Yep, s'pose to be a good mod, gotta be careful not to over-tighten the u-bolt though as it will 'squash' the u-joint cap.

    Re: rear end yoke removal/install

    you will need to get a new crush sleeve (collapsible spacer) and oil seal too if it is D35.
    below is a copy/paste from the serivce manual, it is very techie, but the job can be done at home, only major is getting the pinion torqued to spec.. might be worth the hour labour it will cost to get it done right though.

    COLLAPSIBLE SPACER
    REMOVAL
    (1) Raise and support the vehicle.
    (2) Remove wheel and tire assemblies.
    (3) Remove rear brake drums.
    (4) Mark propeller shaft and pinion yoke for
    installation reference.
    (5) Remove propeller shaft from the yoke.
    (6) Rotate pinion gear three or four times.
    (7) Record torque necessary to rotate the pinion
    gear with an inch pound dial-type torque wrench.
    (8) Hold pinion yoke with Spanner Wrench 6958
    and remove pinion nut and washer.
    (9) Remove pinion yoke with Remover C-452 and
    Flange Wrench C-3281 (Fig. 27).
    (10) Remove pinion shaft seal with a pry tool or a
    slide hammer mounted screw.
    (11) Remove front pinion bearing using a pair of
    pick tools to pull the bearing straight off the pinion
    gear shaft.
    NOTE: If bearing becomes bound on pinion shaft,
    lightly tap the pinion shaft with a rawhide/rubber
    hammer.
    (12) Remove the collapsible spacer.
    INSTALLATION
    (1) Install a new collapsible preload spacer on pinion
    shaft.
    (2) Install pinion front bearing.
    (3) Apply a light coating of gear lubricant on the
    lip of pinion seal and install seal with an appropriate
    installer (Fig. 28).
    (4) Install yoke with Screw 8112, Cup 8109 and
    Spanner Wrench 6958 (Fig. 29).
    (5) Install yoke washer and new nut on the pinion
    gear. Tighten the nut to 271 Nm (200 ft. lbs.).
    PINION SEAL (Continued)
    CAUTION: Never loosen pinion gear nut to decrease
    pinion gear bearing rotating torque and never
    exceed specified preload torque. If preload torque
    or rotating torque is exceeded a new collapsible
    spacer must be installed.
    (6) Using yoke with Spanner Wrench 6958 and a
    torque wrench set at 475 Nm (350 ft. lbs.), (Fig. 30)
    slowly tighten the nut in 6.8 Nm (5 ft. lbs.) increments
    until the rotating torque is achieved. Measure
    the rotating torque frequently to avoid over crushing
    the collapsible spacer (Fig. 31).

    NOTE: If more than 475 Nm (350 ft. lbs.) torque is
    required to crush the collapsible spacer, the spacer
    is defective and must be replaced.

    Re: rear end yoke removal/install

    I think hes just changing the yolk, not the whole pinion bearing.

    The yoke and crush sleeve establish the preload on the pinion bearing... If you are changing the yoke you should install a new crush sleeve in order to get the correct preload...

    it's worth fixing. you don't need a special puller, i have gotten mine off many times with some gental hammer love.

    i've known lots of people who just put a tack weld were the little tab was to keep the cup it.
