Should My Differential Fluid Be Milky Gray In Color?
I was submerged a couple of time yesterday past my diffs. When I drained the rear fluid, the color is a milky gray. I assume this is not the color it should be. Did it change with the mixture of water?

It sure did. The milky color is due to water in the oil. Be glad you changed it when you did. Prolonged use in this condition would have cost a lot more than a fluid change.
Yeah, quick and easy to try and prevent. Just extend your breather lines for your diffs and you probably won't have this problem again. Problem is there is no easy way to check for water in there.

Ya you can extend your breather line from your diff up to the gas tank lid, thats were the origanl one was on your TJ. That will keep water out of your diff.
