I went out yesterday morning and backed up my Rubi up the driveway and when I came out this morning there was a spot on the pavement the size of a quarter below where the rear main seal is. I just replaced one on my other jeep (CJ 4.2). I swore i would never do it again. With this 4.0 The exhaust is all wrapped around the oil pan (WTH) How hard is this one? I'm gonna call and get a price quote today to pay and have it fixed... Probably will then have to do it myself. UGH let me know

Supposededly not bad at all, but I haven't done it yet. Seal is 2 pieces, so thats makes it easier, just got to drop the pan. I need to do mine as well, it drips a bit everyday, but not bad enough yet to need changing. I just make sure to check the oil level weekly.

Here's a write-up I found that might help. Mine has been leaking ever since I bought the jeep 6 years ago, just doesn't leak enough for me to tackle it yet.

Thanks bob and Jansey!!!!

It seems like it doesn't leak (lol Mark its territory) all the time just a couple times a week and especially when it is on an incline. I am going to see if I can snug the bolts down a little too. If I change it I will def put a new pan on it. Just nervous about all the exhaust pipes that run around and over the oil pan.

Thanks,
Michael

Well I only had a minute to get under it this weekend and I sprayed the back of the pan and the fly wheel area and wiped it down and then pulled it up the driveway (incline) and ran it for about twenty minutes and when I went to work this morning there was no oil that had leaked on the ground this morning. Weird huh.. I don't know what to think.

Last night I painted my Ballistic Diff cover and had to order a 3/4 allen key today to take the plug out. So hopefully the key will be here soon. why make it that so you have to buy a special tool. Oh well love the cover though. 4wd.com is having a special on Trucklite headlights today for 179.00 a pair so I ordered a set to install on christmas leave. Can't wait for all the parts to get in. I'm gonna need some good garage time. The oil leak never came back. Really weird. I think in the spring I will order a Mopar oil pan and replace it all. Be Safe everyone..

In regards to the occasional rear main leak, make sure all your PCV system hoses, fittings, and valves are in good shape and clean internally. If you have a sticking valve in the circuit you can build positive pressure in the crankcase and force some oil out.

Today I am actually got some time to work on the Rubi. I installed the trucklite LED Headlights and it was so easy. I will post pics later. Then I was attempting to change my front differential fluid and all was well till I attempted to put on the New Ballisticfabrication Dif cover. It looked awesome and I painted it all up about a month ago and it won't even come close to fitting. So I just got off the phone with Quadratec and I will have what I need here tomorrow so I can' button it up. Thank you quadratec for saving the day!!!!!! I will never order from Ballisticfabrication.com EVER!!!!!!!

Well I made a little progress today. Damn it was cold. I installed the Trucklites. I took off some dumb tube side steps and my rubicon body armor. I wanted to wire up the windshield lights but my wiring harness was crap. tomorrow I will install the new PureJeep Rock Rails and finish changing my front diff cover and fluids.

The Rubicon side Rails were pretty easy except one bolt that I had to dremel a notch and use a huge screwdriver.
