Differential cover fill up rubber plug

Hi Friends

This is my first post, I just get a TJ 97 4cyl with 107k its running nice and all is ok with it, but I saw a small leakage from the rear differencial cover and this leakage are comming from the rubber plug; where I can get this seal?.

I will do it as same this link just that mine is dana 35, please your comments.

Jeep Differential Oil Change

Also I will like to know what is the top speed for this jeep with no lift and 31x10.5 tires I just getting 65 miles practically with my foot reaching the engine. (no more speed than that)

Many many thanks in advance.

any jeep/chrysler dealer, or most auto parts could get you the rubber plug for your dana 35. i also have a 97 tj 4 banger, and my top speed is around 70, any more is hard to do and doesnt feel real comfortable! it works awesome
off road though!

sounds like your overfilled. pull the plug and let the fluid drain out till it stops leaking then put the plug back in

^x2. I bet you probably just have too much fluid in there. Just park it on level ground and pull the plug out for a while. if you want, clean the plug with some brake/part cleaner. I too have a '97 4 banger with 31's and can hit 80, but feel much more comfortable around 65-70mph. trust me from experience, too much speed can get ya in trouble with a wrangler. drive it nice and smooth.

also, if you haven't had a new speedo tooth put in since the new larger tires, you're speedometer is lying to you. when your speedo says 65mph you're actually around 70-71. there's a site somewhere online that will convert your speed for you if you haven't made the modification. i just keep by the rule that i'm always riding 5mph faster than my speedo tells me. although i believe that the product from the funtion of the equation is exponential.

i doubt it, i'm sure you could push the 2.5 to 90 if you wanted. you'd just need to run it down a pretty steep hill. haha
