    Those leak all the time, so it's a pretty common problem. Usually it's the seal between the transfer case, and the adapter.

    It's a pain to do, but mostly because of the removal of the T/case. Once the case is out of the way, it's pretty easy to change out the seal.

    So is it usually the seal between the adapter and the T-case? I have a leak and I just cant tell where its coming from. But it looks to me like behind that adapter to t-case seal its all wet with oil.
