Axle throwing grease into the inside of my wheels? Thoughts?

I have an 08 2 dr sahara. Just got done changing the oil and saw that the inside of my rim on the back is covered in oil. That should be part of the lifetime drivetrain warranty. What do you think it is? I did not have enough time to pull the tire.

Thanks

i dont know where you would get grease from back there. oil on the rim if the axle seal is bad.

No just the stock stuff. What the hell!! I have not even really wheeled this thing. It is a Daily Driver in FL. Barely a pothole in site.

Was it a BIG pothole? Was it in 4wd? LOL just kidding...

Take it to the dealership and see what they say. You never know. They might cover it...
