T-case magnet, how much metal is typical?

Just pulled my t-case and cleaned off the magnet, and the metal was caked on it pretty thick. Probably a 1/4" thick. For a vehicle without a change for about 40k how thick would I expect it to be caked on there?

As long as its sludge and not big pieces, I wouldn't worry about it.
Thank you Dave Cole, Dynomax, Falken and all the Spec Class sponsors!!

What he said.

If you wipe it off and check it again in 10k with with same results, *then* I'd be worried.
