Thats weird it's leaking, did you torque it all criss cross? Are you sure it wasn't just resedue from when you changed it? That's always possible

Oh I hand threaded criss cross, then ratcheted criss cross, then final torqued criss cross! Today when I retorqued I criss crossed too. The pan was bone dry when I left work too. Kinda weird but hope the retorque takes care of it. If not I guess ill baby the fluid all winter then try again in spring. All out of love for the vehicle xD

The tread on those looks like the tread on the Badyears the PO threw on the jeep. I didn't like em and thy weren't to good in the snow. But then again with multiple tread depths and being leaky along with the rims, I would never truly know.

Drove to school today, and still saw a little pan leak. Tomorrow I'm going to try to re-torque again and see what happens. I'm regretting not using RTV now

Either that or it wasn't flat. Using a steel ruler across each hole all turned up level. If I turn it upside down on the flat drive, it would rock a little bit. From what I under stood "check for flatness across each bolt hole" meant what I did with the ruler. I took my dads + uncles advice that "the bolts take care of that" and put it up knowing it rocked when put on level ground.

Not what I wanted to hear D: since I'm only putting 30s on with a 1.75" spacer, not 2". So 31s would be like 40 more and rub
