Check your Axel Fluid Front/Rear


2008 Rubicon 4dr.
I had my oil changed at 14k
The shop also checked my front/rear axel fluid and it was HORRIBLE.

The guy said it is common with Wranglers and not to drive with it that bad, he was honest and right. I went down the pit with him and my fluid was way beyond needing change.

My jeep is a daily driver and never trail driven yet too.
Nothing but work and back.

FYI to all

What do you mean by HORRIBLE? was it low on oil? Was there metal shavings in the fluid?

Usually, when someone tells me that their Diff fluid was "horrible" it was foamy, indicating water in the fluid. Is this what you are referring to?

No metal shavings.
Just very broken down.

It was 100% in need of change.
Our manuals state change at 18k but my Jeep only has 14k
