Thats a good build but thats not the question the OP asked.

If you have filled your front axle with diff fluid you put to much and it will leak out the ends.

First check to make sure to much hasn't be put in.
All you do is unbolt the square nut by sticking a socket in the diff cover on a level surface.

If fluid comes out... you had to much.

check the level of fluid, You might need new seals inside. Does the Jeep go in mud or water a lot?

um, this link is to a site explaining pinion seal replacement. it sounds like one or both of your axle shaft seals are leaking. axle shaft seals on the front axle must be replaced from the inside. therefore its necessary to remove the carrier and ring gear assembly. its quite a big job for someone not experienced in this area.

At very least i would keep a eye on the amount of oil coming out and make sure to keep the oil at the proper level witch is the level of the fill plug.

A leaking front axle that hasn't been overfilled has a bad inner seal. The inner seal is inside the pumpkin and the differential/carrier and axle shafts have to be removed to get to it so it can be replaced. It's not real difficult but it's not for the faint of heart either who have never seen the inside of an axle.

His website is down at the moment but I am 90% sure that Stu has a writeup somewhere on his website for replacing the D30's internal seals. Stu Olson's Jeep TJ Web Site - N7QJP

Edit: Here's the page that describes replacing the inner seals, his website is back up... http://www.stu-offroad.com/axle/yjd3...jconvert-1.htm
