|whiteyjfm||Yes, I did it myself. It is easy. I used the RVT sealer but might give the lube locker a try next time around. When I did it last year I have read a lot of bad things about the lube lockers but all seems fine now days.|

|whiteyjfm||Yes, just a little rub. The front one was worse. No sound but a decent amount of metal was rubbed off. In the back you can hardly see it but it make a decent clunk every time it hit. That really annoy me big time. One day I will change the rear track bar out for the Teraflex one too. That solve the problem at the front.|

|whiteyjfm||We have the Poison Spider diff covers on our Rubicon with a 2,5" Teraflex lift and stock track bar at the back and we rub at the back. Not bad, but enough to irritate me.|

It's time to get a better diff cover, like an ARB or others. My suggestion is to do it yourself. Drain the diffs, open them up and clean of the RTV type seal the dealership uses, get yourself a front and rear re-usable gasket like Lub Locker, put them on, install the new diff covers, put in good oil, and your good to go.

Take this as an opportunity to upgrade.
Get a good aftermarket diff cover and use a lubelocker gasket.

|ThingsAbove||Lucky you. You get to buy a cool aftermarket diff cover. I'm just waiting to have a similar excuse.|

You didn't damage the diff or cover too bad, but you broke the seal. You could pull the diff cover, drain all the oil and redo it with plenty of extra RTV gasket sealer on that one spot with the normal amount on the rest. Then bolt it on, let it dry, and refil with new fluid
If the diff cover is a little bent you could straighten it out with a wrench or hammer

Rear diff slowly leaking
So im under my jeep looking around (i like doing that when i bored) and looked at my rear diff where i had scraped it on a rock and painted over it. It was small in my opinion, it couldnt have any mechanical problems. figured just painting over it would be fine as its just for rust protection. Well guess not. I put my hand on it to feel it and got gear oil on my hand! Small amount but still. Take a look and please advise!
