What are y'alls axle temps?

Hey guys! I searched for this and couldn't find it. I am just curious if anyone has ever taken the temp of, or knows what temperatures the front and rear axles should be under normal highway and street driving. I changed my front and rear fluids and I should have checked them before I changed all of it, but I didn't think to. No problems to report, just curious if anyone has ever done it. Thanks in advance.

Of all the things that concern me about my Jeep, knowing the exact axle temp isn't in the top 100.

depends on what fluid you are using....

generally, if you can put your hand on it, it's fine. if you can't touch it, it's too hot.

some have actually installed temp gauges on diesel pickups towing heavy....they typically run around 180F or less.

For a daily driver/weekend warrior Jeep TJ, monitoring axle temp is worthless as far as I'm concerned. Your axle will probably grenade before you learn anything useful by monitoring the temp.....

Monitoring axle temp in a tow pig that you're pushing hard isn't a bad idea, but otherwise it sure don't matter.

If there's a problem in the axle that's causing excess heat (bearings), there's nothing you can do but replace the bearings. Won't help you to know sooner.

Only buy the pure snake oil and don't forget the butt dyno for seat of the pants readings. I prefer the Tornado for HP gains.

I wasn't selling them, I happened to see that last week while looking for a new trans temp gauge.

Didn't Currie do a bunch of testing on axle temps a few years ago? Not sure they ever made any results broadly available. IIRC the results though are why they will not warranty one of their axles if you don't use dino oil.

i read that somewhere too.
i dont know if dino or synth is better, but i run thick dino cause its cheap.
i can change it more often, and worry less.
it probably matters very little i bet.
