I removed ours a few weeks ago. Pretty easy once you get the axles out. I had the belt cover both inner and outer off and the clutches off too so that made it a lot easier. Not sure if the cover has to be taken off for removal. Don’t forget to put the shim that’s inside the diff back in the right spot .

Thanks, just watching for now. My rear diff has been milky looking ever since the flip, going to try a couple more flushes, replace all the vent lines. I’m hoping there’s water trapped somewhere, not a leak.

Ok, well if interested when I’m done ours you can bring it by and we can do it in a day. I got water in ours and changed it multiple times and could never get it clean. That’s why I pulled mine and I did replace the axle seals on it and siliconed it back together.

Hi guys, I am having the same issue with my machine. I have been told it may be due to the suspension lift which causes added vibration and heats up the seals. Was wondering if you used factory seals or is there a better quality part out there that may stand up better. I have heard of a few guys blowing their diff because of this problem.

I haven't got around to doing mine yet but i intended on using OEM seals.
