Is your axle seals leaking?
^x-2 also check your vent line.
yikes... how many miles??? most of us heat wrapped or used a heat shield to keep the extreme exhaust heat away from the rear diff to try and stop this
After looking more into it I time the front seal is leakin
Will wrapping the exhaust pipe cause any damage to it if you are going in and out of mud holes all the time? Heard some where that it will make the exhaust crack or something like that ... just wanted to know if it was true or not?
Hours of riding in and out of mudd and water i ve had to Re Wrap. No damage to my exhaust
