Jeep don't seem to use too top a quality bolts. I just finished pulling the front drive shaft out of my ZJ (only till I get a better TC as the VC decided to die) and what should be a 10 min job took me 3-4 hours. All the bolts stripped using the right size socket. Replace with something better IMO. Aslong as it's sealed you shouldn't need to worry thought. The diffs only fill about half way.

thats true, but when the jeep is in motion the fluid is flung everywhere

RTV and let it harden before you tighten the bolts down and dry before you fill with fluid.

Dude, I have the two lowest bolts broke off and mine doesn't leak unless I drag it over some rocks. I'm planning on drilling and tapping holes right beside the broke off bolts to stop the cover from being pulled on by rocks. With some RTV you won't leak with just the top bolts missing.
