Looking for some insight, I have a 2018 JL Jeep wrangler sport 2 door. 23,000 miles well taken care of and maintained (no oftermarket mods). In 10/20 I had to replace the rear differential at 20,000 miles. After that i constantly heard a low grinding noise when driving, took it back to the...
Long Story Short, I'm getting a new transmission under warranty.
That Jeep dealership called me that they needed to do a Differential/transfer case fluid change. The service would cost me $700 :CWL:
So I said no, I'll go somewhere else
But in all seriousness. The JL has 3 spots for the change...

Update: Added a new tab to easily compare differential ratios in top gear. Also some...
My differential locks are staying illuminated on the instrument cluster. They still fuction properly but indicate being locked at all times. Anyone have a similar issue or any ideas what could be wrong, dealer has no idea?!?

The other day I turned off traction control and did a burn out and I noticed I had to sets of tire marks left on the road. I don't have a LSD so I was wondering how this was possible. I remember on old RWD cars that some had posi-traction. Do Jeeps?
EDIT: Covers are shipping! *First to market* These are professionally welded by hand, and *CNC Machined Flat* on their mating surface after welding to ensure that any warping from heating/cooling is taken care of.
Update #2: 10/10/18: Rear Diff Skids Shipping...
