Replacing carrier bearing on 2 piece driveshaft?

Hey all,
The carrier bearing on my 01 4 dr dually 2 piece drive shaft needs to be replaced. Is this a fairly easy job or should I take it to a driveline shop to have it done. Any help would be appreciated. I don't have a press but can take it to a parts store that has one if needed. Thanks

The carrier bearing is pressed on-- some have been able to remove it with a puller.

I suggest you take it to a drive shaft shop, and have them replace the bearing and the u-joints. Then it will be good for a long time. Replacing U-joints can be tricky, if you have never done it before.

Thanks for the replies. Would it be best to drain the tranfer case before pulling drive shaft or just catch what drains out? The seal in the back of the transfer case is also leaking, can that be replaced from the outside in the truck or does the transfer case have to be taken apart?

Thanks to ya'al from Arkansas!!!!!!!!! The, we're all related state!!!!!!

You shouldn't leak anything and it will be very little if you do once shaft is pulled.

I swapped that seal when I dropped my tcase to install a pump rub kit. But should be able to do it up there pretty easily.
