Congrats, I think you got the best year made for a TJ! So far as the differential being wet, is the differential vent tube connected? If so, where does the wetness appear to be coming from? If it's from the front pinion shaft area, which is not uncommon, that's not a difficult seal to replace. I replaced mine and the seal was under $10. It took me maybe 30-45 minutes to replace it. Most of that time was spent tearing up the old seal to get it out!

When you have a choice, buy American made.

I have a 98 d44 in the rear of my 2000 it leaks lsightly out of the pinion seal as Jerry described. I will eventually replace it but to be honest unless it gets to be a faster leak real quick I wouldn't worry about it.

thanks for taking the time to answer my question. you all seem to know what your talking about when it comes to my problem. I'm going to set up an imagestation account now and i'll be posting up pics of the rear diff and it's issue. The mechanic said that the rear pinion seal will need to be replaced, could that be causing the diff. to be wet? thanks again Also, if you think thats my problem, does anyone have a walk through on how to change the rear diff seal?
