    Getting ready to install a new rear axle seal on my 2011 JK with 75,000 km. Is this a common problem on JKs?

    I haven't had an axle seal problem so I can't really say. It could be a bad luck axle or depends upon how much off roading or it could be from sitting around unused. I'm crazy enough to upgrade the axle to HD axles/locker etc should a seal or axle decide to go nuclear.
