Question about Jeep Cars & Trucks
You did not post where the leak is. You did not post what the problem is that caused the breakdown. You did not say how the vehicle was towed.

Do it again and be really careful to get the seal in dead square. Put a thin layer of silicone glue around the outside of the seal housing, on some difficult ones that leak, you can put silicone inside the cavity where the tension spring is to give a bit more pressure on the axle (let that dry before using) and, make sure you wipe a bit of grease on the axle where the seal rides so it cant run dry before lube reaches it. One or more of these items have got to work...I've used them all and they all have worked.

First thing to test is to see if the front driveshaft is getting engaged from the transfer case. With the vehicle in 4x4, and engine shut off, and in park, crawl under and try to turn the front driveshaft by hand. The driveshaft looks like a pipe that runs from the transfer case, located just behind the engine/transmission, to the front differential. If it rotates by hand, there is a problem with the transfer case. Some Jeeps have a vacuum actuator on the front diff that slides a collar inside the axle tube to engage it. I will watch for you findings, and you can leave me another message, and I will be happy to chat back with you on your findings.

Likely then the tech was wrong and some damage has occurred.
(sometimes it's hard to see) Gear sets are expensive and so are bearings. Only people with the proper tools and experience should attempt a rebuild.
Most often you can find a good used unit end to end in a scrapyard for under $200. (I haven't paid more than $125 for any I have gotten lately). You can put your new axles and hub bearings on the new unit or save them for spares.
One very important thing is to exactly match the gear ratio of the one you are replacing. There should be a tag on the diff cover or you can count the ring gear teeth and divide by pinion tooth count to get that #. Some are also stamped on the edge of the ring gear as well. It takes about a day for an average person (with a helper) to remove and install one on the ground providing you have decent tools, jacks and a bit of experience. Far less time on a lift with power tools.

SOURCE: how do you remove the
Use white paint, chalk or a scribe to mark the relationship of the front U joint to the front diferential pinion yoke. Mark the relationship of the rear U joint flange to the transfer case companion flange. Unbolt the front end of the drive shaft from the pinion yoke and the rear end from the transfer case companion flange and remove the drive shaft from the vehicle.
hope thei info helps.
