My latest update is that they are checking something in the diff and will likely be replacing The entire rear diff. I thought they wouldn’t replace the diff and would just do the whole axle assembly? Is that sensor part of the differential assembly or the axle?

It is an electrical component that takes less than 15 minutes to replace.

Wow...totally unacceptable [email protected]

Makes me think the 14B/Currie RJ60 I've got lying around should go under this thing instead of the craptastic factory axles.

So because this electrical component is prone to have diff fluid seep into it and ruin it and not wanting to buy another rear axle assembly to replace another component, I put RTV sealer around the cap of the component in hopes of eliminating a potential leak.

Anyways here is a video on how to replace the sensor...electrical component on your JLUR. and my experience with Jeep.


Wibornz, please update us on the RTV bandaid after your trip.
