Actually Andre I have the same leak from the cripped metal peice to on the Trans lines. It started when the weather got really really cold. I need to take mine in too for that. I dont see how they can deny that. It has nothing to do with the lift. Not to say they won't try.

I am going to be taking mine up to the Jeep place in Burlington. Lots of people telling me they are mod friendly. I think its called Lucas. Might be wrong though.

Mine started seeping about 6 months ago. Not bad but definitely a leak; seems worse with very cold weather. Transmission fluid level hasn't really changed.

Will do the fix soon. May just have a good shop redo the fittings with good connections, adding cooler as well. If this is possible.

my tranny pan was leaking a few weeks ago, took it to the dealer and I was pleasantly surprised they didn't say a thing about my lift. But I think it'd be hard to blame a bad gasket on the lift... Sucks dude, hope you get it resolved soon.

NOT A DUDE!

I have a couple leaks. Developed post cooler install using barbed brass fittings and hose clamps. I opted to have a set of hoses made at hydraulic shop. I haven't installed them yet, so I don't know if the new ones will seep. Hope not.
