Yes, the rust is on the buildings as well as the cars...

I just got my Jeep back from the dealer tonight, my dad dropped it off this morning for oil/diff/tire rotation/"V6 engine Tune-up" whatever the hell that is (I told them is was idling rough)/program my fogs (which is a whole other bag of worms).

He also picked it up so all I have to go by is the printout summary, but they say the diff levels were fine. Which really bugs me because 4,000 miles ago they said I should get it flushed, so either back then I didn't need it and they were trying to upsell me ... or I did need it and still do and the guy today is an idiot. Or I still don't need it... I don't know which case bothers me more

Re: Should I be concerned about this much rust?

Well the level can be fine. But the fluid can be not as lubricating you know. I would do it myself took me about an hour in my driveway. Very simple.

Re: Should I be concerned about this much rust?

I was thinking about doing it, but then I chickened out. I could get it done with jack stands and a ratchet set in my driveway?

Re: Should I be concerned about this much rust?

yes. You need to raise the car so the rear wheels drop down to reach the top diff bolts. Then just unbolt the case and put a pan underneath. Then once all the bolts are off you may have to gently tap it a few times with a rubber mallet. The fluid will call come out and then you will need to dry off the whole diff and get a RTV gasket maker. Apply a steady bead of gasket sealer on the whole case then put it back on the case only to hand tighten the bolts. Wait a little while before torquing the bolts down so the gasket has time to form the shape of the diff. When you are torquing the bolts make sure to not over tighten.

Then after its reassembled let it sit for a little whilebefore adding fluid, i waited about an hour. Lower the car down and make sure it is on a level surface. (When the cover was off make sure you popped off the rubber fill hole) Then add your diff fluid until the level starts to come out of the fill hole.
