Does your Jeep leak? weep? or is it dry as a bone?

I have had my Jeep for almost a year. its an '05 LJ. I have a lift on it, new gears, lockers, ujoints, ball joints etc.. and the derale tranny cooler.. it doesnt really leak.. its more like it weeps a little here, a little there, some from the ends, then a little from the middle.. not a lot just a little, not all the time either.. it can go weeks, then all of a sudden a few drops, sometimes its red, then I had a couple of drops of blue..

My point is.. is this just normal for Jeep? my other vehicles never leak.. I find this really annoying.

Typical to some degree, and not trying to start an argument, but unlike Jap made vechicles that almost never leak anything. Every US made vechicle I own or owned either weeps somewhere (new)-or leaks when it gets 40-50K miles on it.

My 06 TJ with 76,000 miles does not leak anything.
I will count my blessings.

WTF kind of leaks are you referring to? A little more technical discription would be useful. ....ends....middle....

No fluid leaks of any kind on my 99 4.2 automatic sahara at 117,000 miles. It was stored for a year and did leak a little transmission fluid when it was moved a couple of times. After putting it back on the road the leak stopped and it's been fine! I made sure all fluid reserves were full before driving it..............

My rear diff has started to seep a little bit, and every now and then I'll see a small puddle underneath the jeep and check it out, but it's almost always water ( or something that doesn't smell, is clear, and doesn't taste too weird.... ) . I have AC but the compressor is seized at the moment, so I'm not sure what it is honestly.

When I first got it the valve cover was seeping a little, but a new vcg fixed it up real quick!
