Front driveshaft repairable?

This is the front driveshaft end that goes into the T-Case.

Anyone know if that part is replaceable?

I think its sold as a complete driveshaft. Is the driveshaft junk, or are you trying to address that fluid leakage? That looks like it could be the front seal on the transfer case.

The driveshaft is fine, I am looking to address that seal. Trying to figure out where to begin? I think it looks more like grease, the seal looks to house a bearing in there?

Clean off the grease/oil and watch it very close in the next few days to see if it comes back..... I would inspect the boot very carefully to make sure there is no tear I'm it or cut as well with a flashlight....

Oh ok..... Well one of 2 things then is hopefully the boot can be replaced if not the whole driveshaft has to be replaced.... My guess a brand new one from the dealer will be around 300 to 600 for it cuz I know a rear driveshafr costs 1300.00 at the dealer...

No replacement parts for it are available from the dealer, got to buy the whole thing but its not that expensive

I think it was less than $200. Im not sure if they have boiled it down to one but different years have different drive shafts so make sure you search by vin or year

I had the boot melt off on the dyno because of the headers, a very hot day and not enough air flowing under the jeep.
