    The drain/fill plug on the front diff is right inside the frame behind the driver side lower control arm.

    Get back up to snuff cuz it wasn't maintained. I got xm radio in it.
    I replaced the diff fluid on the rear axle today! Sure enough 2.5 bottles of fluid. Then it was onto the front...where to fill...found the plug listed on the above df-18, but didn't have the appropriate tool to unscrew the plug. Where do I get the replacement gasket for these plugs?
