Differential Drain/ Fill Plug Location?
 
I searched the site and the interwebs pretty well. I also crawled under the GC. However, I can't locate the front diff drain plug or either of the plugs on the rear :confused:
I'm not completely inept, I've built 3 rock crawlers. For crying out loud, this independent axle thing is killing me :o
I promise I will to a DIY with photo galore if someone points them out to me. Thanks, folks!
Edit:
FWIW, it is a '11 JGC Overland, 5.7L, 230mm rear end w/ELSD

Ah ha! All of them are on the drive shaft input side; for the front they are on the left of the pumpkin. For the rear they are right (as if you are looking forward from the back bumper.
No wonder! Whereever I read about it yesterday they must have mixed up left and right sides! I will be putting a step by step up in the next few weeks.
Thank you!

HAHA! I've been looking at the back of the rear trying to figure out where the fill plug is! Now if only I didnt have to take the skid plates off to get to the front diff and TC.

Thanks!!!!
