If you do a lot of local short trip driving you accumulate a lot of water in the exhaust. I do a lot of interstate driving, 100 a day, and do not warm up my TJ. Just start and go as soon as the oil pressure is up. So I do not see it.

That makes sense. I've just never seen that much water from any of my vehicles. The other thing I noticed the other day was the smell of gear oil after driving home from work. It's not leaking anywhere. It's a distinct smell of gear oil. I've been drive with my OD off. would that have anything to do with it?
