Re: Front Diff Fluid Change Cheat

Good deal. What's this red sealer on the rear diff? If I undo the bolts/cover will I have to reapply said sealer?

It's the red RTV high temp silicone sealant. You def have to seal up the rear diff if you take off the cover. You also have to scrape ALL the old red RTV stuff off. It's easy though

She's driving smooth and clean! Took only 1.5 hours. I def recommend getting a hand pump to refill the front diff and xfercase. Not too much room under there!

on WKjeeps it states to only use mopar brand transfer case oil.
i just ordered all my oil except the TCase for that reason, are u noticing any problems??

i posted up asking about it but never got an answer.

Re: Front Diff Fluid Change Cheat

my WK has 20000 miles on it, my fluids didn't look that bad, but I tow frequently so I'm going to get into the 15000 miles between changes from now on.

the severe scheduled is 15000 miles, while the non-severe is 30000 miles.

is there such a thing as a magnetic plug for the front drain? perhaps even a magnet plug to replace the silly rubber plug in the rear.

Re: Front Diff Fluid Change Cheat

I used a T70 Torx socket from Auto Zone on the front drain plug. $5 from Auto Zone, sold individually and fits right in there. Cheaper than buying a hex set with a 14mm in it. It's an idea from using a T60 Torx socket, that I have had forever, on the T-case plugs on the WK and the TJ. It's either a T60 or T55, I'm just too lazy to verify that right now because it's raining.

Re: Front Diff Fluid Change Cheat

My t-case change was a pain in the *ss because you cant fit any type of socket or allen wrench in to get the drain plug out bc there is some bracket in the way. I had to cut down a 10mm hx wrench to about 3/4" and use an open ended wrench to loosen the nut
