It may not look like much in the picture but it leaks quite a bit when heated up. It runs from that front area in the picture and forms drops on all the bolts on the inspection plate. It made it much easier to see where it was coming from once I cleaned it off. Is this location an easy disassembly or should I bust out my White Shepherd gunk?

Carl, I'm not a fan of trying the additives. Either live with the leak or replace the seals. This is not an easy one. You need to remove the t-case and to be safe replace the input seal on the t-case and the output seal on the transmission (or you might be doing it again). Not expensive for parts but a lot of work. Or you can live with it :D

That's a live with it leak because you've got to strip the box down to fix it, check any nuts on studs that hold the joint together are tight.
Don't think additives would work in that area because it's a paper type gasket not a seal.

Wait, I am about 90% sure you can pull the front output assembly off without dropping the case. I have not done it, but I am about to as I need to install my part time kit and the directions say it can be done.

If you do, let me know!

I will tighten the bolts and see if it makes a difference.
