Differential Lube Change

finally got that done today and found that the rear diff has a rubber plug in it instead of a real threaded plug?? I had no idea the rear was like this and can only assume all of them are like this??

All '89 & newer Dana 35 axles have this plug. Previous model years have a threaded plug.

Is it something that can be replaced easily or even something to worry about?? Just seems pretty important part to be made out of rubber like that....

yours is over 20 years old and the plug has worked just fine all that time. Yes it is fine.

Try a different rear axle if you're not happy.

Don't have the budget for that right now.... trying to get it solid before we start doing fun stuff to it....

On the list:
new windshield frame and glass
electric fan set-up
U-joints for front driveshaft
seats are a bit rough
paint inside and out
needs a top (son drives it for DD or will be very soon)
Transmission synchros are a bit rough (it doesn't like to downshift to 4th or 3rd)

Upgrade at rear axle when it actually works (knock on wood)??
