Lusus_Naturae Good to have them replaced now under warranty - it's also one reason people give them a bad name, because they do wear down. Yours sound like a defect though. I bought my JKU with LSD, even though open wouldn't have bothered me either. I expect they will die before 100k though from wear alone.

correct when up on the lift. It is common for lsd clutch plates to wear they live a tough life.

DFW6ER It can happen. The rear diff does all the work when in 2WD, so it gets used. Probably a manufacturer defect. Glad to hear it's being covered under warranty

Black Diff Fluid and Shavings?

Hey All,
Was getting a little clunk when pulling away, Jeep tech checked all suspension components in back and, eventually, the rear diff. He showed me that the fluid was black with some metallic shavings and is now going forward with a warranty request to pull the cover and check out the internals. He said he checked my VIN and it should have posi, which means clutch plates and other potential problems.

Sound legit? Thoughts? It's a 2010 with 36k. Since I don't offroad or tow, I haven't yet changed the diff fluid.
