New guy here, new Jeep owner too. I bought a 2012 JKU last Sunday, on Monday I was out getting acquainted with my Jeep and its systems on some forest service roads. I wasn't doing anything aggressive as a matter of fact I regularly drove my Nissan 4x4 PU on these same roads but it was a chance for me to play in some dirt and use my 4-wheel drive on the Jeep. When I got home my jeep was leaking transmission fluid all over my driveway. Turns out a stick had been kicked up off the road and split the seal on my transmission oil pan. The mechanic said he had never seen this happen and it was a 1 in a million shot. Warranty did not cover it and I was out $153
Has this happened to anyone else here? Is this a known weak spot on the Jeep? Is there any type of recommended armor I should get for this area? As I mentioned, I just bought this vehicle so I am running it stock for now but if this is a known problem it might be the first after market part I add.
