I'll be replacing my inner axle seals soon, and planned to go with the Spicer 54831 for my 2004 Rubicon until I came across a Spicer publication saying the 2013455 seal replaces the 54831 seal.

Spicer says the 2013455 seal is an improved replacement for the 54381 with a triple lip design, but they don't say that it fits the TJ Rubicon.

Here's the Spicer 2013455.

Here's the Spicer 54381.

Anyone have any experience with the newer 2013455 seal in a stock TJ Rubicon Dana 44?
 
I just ran across this same question while searching for seals. Magua hasn't been back in several years, so I doubt he'll read this and respond whether or not he found an answer. Does anyone else know if the 2013455 seal is an improvement and fits in a TJ Rubicon Dana 44 front axle?

Searching the same questions. Has anyone used the 2013455 in a TJ/LJ Dana 44 Front axel?
