    1st 4 wheel drive for me and not too familiar with these issues. Noticed some residue on the skid plate and tracked it to the cv (pic below).
    Is this something I should get repaired immediately, or can I drive the truck over the weekend then have it done?
    Also, I have rpg adjustable collars is there any chance they blame the failure on the collars?
    Thanks

    I take it this is a common issue then? How long does the repair typically take?

    I have seen where this has been reported, but I would not say it is common.

    Jake likes to try to induce panic into anyone owning a Raptor.

    have you noticed any puddles of oil or has it been simple weeping? There is tons of oil in that front diff, you will be perfectly fine. Remember, the front 4wd system doesn't rotate when in 2wd, thus where a couple of problems arise from. (water filled diff oil, leaky seals, bearing failures, etc..) I would say find somewhere to put that bad boy in 4 high to heat up the fluids and promote oil movement. Sometimes, it will stop seal leaks due to the lubricants moving around.

    No puddles. I will clean everything up and take it out for a drive on some local trails. Thanks for the advice
