Hello. I have a '14 JKU with little over 10k on the odometer. I'm not mechanically inclined, i mean i could change the oil and rotate the tires, but that's pretty much where my knowledge ends. As I was doing a tire rotation and noticed the frame over the rear passenger tire was wet (greasy wet). Also there is a hose (looks like a breather hose) covered in the same grease. Can somebody tell me what it is and Should I be concerned? If that helps the jeep had gears swapped to 4.88 and had ARB lockers put in about 2k miles ago.

Thanks.

Maybe a bit far for oil to reach from this but have you checked the rear drive shaft? On another note, there seems to be an oil leak with most 14s where either the seal is faulty or it's been over torqued past 18 ft lbs and then fails prematurely. I think there are several threads about this you can check into too.

Sounds like to me who ever did the gears and locker over filled the diff
With gear oil and it's pushing it out through the breather hose...
