I have a 97 Sport 4x4. Noticed that the Rear diff is leaking from a rubber plug in the back.
I'm assuming that I can just replace that rubber plug. While I'm at it, I'm also assuming that I should top off the fluid. What weight is recomended, and where can I find that plug from besides a dealer? Anywhere good on-line?
also i assume you can first try just cleaning the metal area on ur differential.. now that u mention that you live in chicago my gues would be there is rust around the entire plug hole so its not seating right and is causing the leaking.
There is a diff. cover that really is bullet proof. The manufacturer shot it point blank with a .44 and didnt pearce it. Some of you have probably seen it. They are cast iron and painted black inside and out.
On a side note, where the hell is the fill plug on that stupid clear gearz crap?
Fox - thanks! I'm assuming that will fit my stock jeep.
Thanks for all your help guys!
assuming your jeep has a Dana 30 in the front and a Dana 35 for the rear and that is the one you want to get a cover for. they also make D44 as well. I will see if I can find those for you as well and post them.
Keepin the peace.
The difference between sport and combat is that in combat you bury the one who comes in second.
I have the Solid Axle D30 cover, and it is indeed bullet proof. Also, since you snow plow, you might just want to change your diff fluids in both the 30 and 35, just to be on the safe side. I have used 80/90 for years with no problems at all. Good luck.
A to Z fabrication has some nice covers http://www.atozfabrication.com/catal...2d8f021a9089dc
and on the main page they are currently giving 10% off everything.
unfortunately they are out of dana 30 covers for now, they said they will let me know when they are in stock.
