2014 JKURX manual transmission with 4:10 gearing and 37" tires.
Paranoia or valid issue:
Got out and crawled underneath to do an impromptu check and just noted that my front differential is much cooler than my rear differential... I had just completed a 25 minute drive across town in 2WD.
... Still have the drive shaft connected on the front so the drive train still turns parasitically to the transfer case... I just don't ever remember the rear diff being hotter than the front.
The front was warm to the touch while the rear was actually hot enough to not allow me to keep my hand on the casing.
Can anyone else make a quick check of their differential temps after a trip and let me know what they find?
Rear diff seal appears ragged... I wonder if I have lost oil from it?
Have not hit the rear diff on anything
Have not pulled the rear diff cover for any reason (yet!)
What should the oil level for the rear diff be measured at? (Gonna go check when I know what I'm looking for)
