Is your axle vent tube secure, no-cracks or damage, and secured properly at both ends? The other seal that seals the axle tubes and keeps water out is the inner seal which is located inside the pumpkin.

i checked the vent tube, it is in good condition. how about the seals at the ends of the axle assembly?

just to note, i have no idea where those seals that i posted in the link above are installed. i was hoping if someone here could explain.

The plastic seals at the end of the axle shaft tubes are only there to keep rocks & other big pieces of debris out of the axle tubes. The inner axle seal inside the pumpkin is what actually seals the gear lube in and keeps the water out of the inside of the pumpkin.

so it seems that my inner seals are broken

The inner seals are what seal the pumpkin from getting water into it. There is no real reason to try to keep water out of the axle tubes. I'd only go for aftermarket axle tube seals for the tube opening if my Jeep lived in the mud pits.

They won't hold out the mud and water indefinitely, even when properly maintained with periodic shots of grease. Unfortunately, one of my wheeling areas will have mud holes that are in between obstacles, after a rain. I recently had to make a trail repair and when I pulled a front axle shaft, it was covered in soupy mud. I know Blaine despises them but, he's in the south west, as well. I don't know what the answer is for those of us that hate mud but, has to traverse the stuff while wheeling.
