    Was under the truck today giving it it's 10k drive shaft greasing and i decided to clean the transfer case because it was looking pretty dirty. Lowe and behold under the greasy dirt, near the OEM t-case skid plate, it looks like a cracked heard boiled egg.

    Is this okay? I've never noticed it before so I don't know if it's from me or the previous owner. I hope it's nothing major? Doesn't seem to be leaking oil.

    mine looks like that too. clean it off as best. recheck in a few days to make sure its not seeping out of breather tube. that or the case might be porous n might have to be replaced.

    to me it looks like it came out of the mold too soon or it was cooled down too fast.

    I could do as above was said clean it off best to pressure wash it and recheck in a few days to a few weeks.
