    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.

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

    Hitch and wiring, aux back-up light, rear strobe lights, radio and underseat sub.
    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.
