Only have about 800 miles on the rebuild but that does include a weekend at Rausch Creek (with lots of water crossings) and so far so good. I am very happy with the lack of leaks and even after draining the oil there seems to be no ingress either. I am also happy with how the POR15 is holding up on the swivel balls...I will post up another follow up later this year after I have had a chance to get a few thousand more miles and some more wheeling trips.

Mine were not as pitted as Jeff's so I did the JB without painting (around the same time as Jeff) and it has help up well.

Mine have held up very well. After one wheeling trip I thought I may have a little leak on the RH side but it turned out that there was just some dirt/debris logged behind the seal. After giving them a wipe they have been leak free again. I will get some pics of my balls (hee hee) later when I am working on installing an axle but they still look great and at this point I would not hesitate to recommend the POR-15 on top of the JB weld.

Here you go, a pic of my ball that I took last night. I killed a CV on my last wheeling trip so I stripped it down to clean out any remaining metal shavings and snapped this pic
