rear diff seal leak

went to glamis last weekend and at the end of the trip started smelling burnt oil. looked under the rhino and is seems that the rear seal that sits on the driveshaft and connects to the diff is leaking. anyone had to change that seal and know how hard of a fix this is?

The nut is known to come loose on the rear diff. You should be able to just pull it apart and re tighten the nut. If thats the case the seal will be fine.

i skipped the sealant and put it back together. my bolt wasn't even finger tight. i could spin it with one finger. not a hard fix at all so if it leaks again i'll hit you back up as to what sealant you guys used on the splines.
