    My rear axle is leaking but not too bad but it does have a leak. I was told when I bought the Jeep that I would have to replace the seal. How do I do that?

    Pop the cover off with a drain pan underneath as the fluid will dump out. Clean the mounting surfaces good and either go back with a gasket or some RTV.
    LubeLocker gaskets are nice, but RTV is cheap.
    Once it's back together fill it until you can touch fluid by putting your finger into the fill hole the your first knuckle.

    I bought a new gasket and gear oil, I bought 85w-140 because it was in my budget.
