So this thread is an illustration of me actually doing the work. What is not in the commentary in the photos is the axle center bearing has to be pressed off with a 12ton press. The new bearing and the bearing replacement was done at Englewood Driveshafts Inc (Denver). Bill was the one who replaced the bearing after i removed the driveshafts and brought the front portion to him. The new bearing,rubber damper,bearing removel and replacement was less than $100. He was very nice to tell me how it was put on, a few tricks next time and he let me watch most of the work in his shop. Total time to replace just the bearing appx 20 minutes. Total time from start to finish if done all at once appx 3 hours (drive time included in that). I was able to do this by myself, you just need to ensure not to let the parts come crashing down on you and injuring you.
When after the bearing was replaced, assemblage of all the components is exactly backwards from the removal. start with inserting the front shaft into the transfer case,bolting the bearing carrier to the drop down hangar, bolt the hangar to the crossmember with the 4 bolts, slide on the rear portion of the shaft, crimp on the new strap on the boot, align the rear ujoint to the axle input yoke, ensure the cups are set into the yoke properly (you will see the clean pressure points on the cups, match these to the yoke). Then put a touch of loktite on the 4 small bolts, torque them per MFG specs (will update with torqe specs). Test drive to ensure no weird vibrations or issues.
