Help! Front diff fluid leaking from axle

What is the problem and how much is this going to cost me? Fluid leaking where axle goes into front diff?

2 hours? That's generous! It's quicker if you're handy with a set of tools.

I'd say it's about a 6 beer job.

Is there anything I should be worried about or any special tools I need?

Rent a seal driver of the proper size, and buy a seal puller. Screwing up the install by using the wrong tool is a good way to do the job twice.
