You did nothing wrong, your synthetic will protect your axle well. It's just in extreme uses like Currie axles are commonly used in when a conventional gear lube is a better (or sometimes required for warranty reasons) choice.

From my understanding of Jerry's post, you'll be ok, I'm sure he would've said if you needed to change it.

I have a recently purchased '04 TJ. Noticed a few drops on the ground below rear differential. Looks like some type of red rubbery material slightly protruding at seam around back plate (unsure of term), as if trying to help seal. That is where the leak is. Do I need to do anything about that? Am I screwed? Thanks for any help.
