Questions & Answers
Questions: I have a Dana 25 front axle. The short side is a Rzeppa with screws to take it apart. The long side looks like a Rzeppa axle BUT has no screws to take it apart. Can you tell me how this side comes apart and is this also a Rzeppa axle?

Yes this is a Rezeppa. Im not sure what you mean by screws to take it apart. You may be looking at an aftermarket lockout on your vehicle.

If You have the jeep service manual (reprinted available from K/W) look at section M-8. If the cage retainer does not have the three little screws, you drive the shaft inward using a wood mallet if necessary to drive the retaining ring into its groove in the spline, permitting the joint to be slipped off the axle shaft. Mine had the 3 screws on both sides thankfully, but I can see this should work. Cheers, Tom

Yes this is for all the vehicles listed above. These take a castle nut and cotter pin at the end of the shaft.

One your CJ-2A someone has replaced an axle thru the years. It is common. Both were originally the Rezeppa style. They are interchangable either way.
