Looks normal, mine was about the same after 73k when I got the jeep and it had never been changed. I'd probably change it more often than that now if I ever were you, I did. On the second change probably 10k later the plug was full again from stuff it probably couldn't get before.


Looking for: 03-06 interior plastic trim. PM me.

Additionally I had only put in a quart based on the FSM suggestion, but reading on this forum I heard people were fitting more. Thank goodness too because I fit more that another 1/2 quart in there before it filled up to the plug hole. Probably saved me a broken t-case!!!

Looks normal compared to others that wheel their jeeps.

I have always heard something like change the fluids every...

... 30k for transmission
... 15-20k for transfer case
... 12k for difs

Can anyone confirm these #s? or tell what they do?

That's about what it says in the owners manual for the "severe" duty rating.

Front and rear diffs taken care of. 61k miles of RTV collecting grime was not easy to scrape off. Went with Lube Lockers on both and didn't have any leaking after a 15 minutes test drive.

No damage or worn/sharp teeth. Just that stanky gear oil smell. Spray painted the diff covers black as well. They look good, but don't exactly match with the rest of my rust-colored underbody.

I'll definitely be maintaining everything better from now on though. Thanks again to everyone for all the knowledge and info.

I was able to get almost 1.5 quarts of ATF+4 in. The manual calls for only 1.1

If you haven't changed the diff fluid yet, NEVER MIND.
