When I came home from a weekend of wheeling I noticed what I suspected to be a differential leak. Upon further investigation at least 6 of the 10 bolts where loose.
Then I noticed the bolts in the front were different from the rear. The rear were hex head bolts with washers. The front were allen head with no washers.
I had installed my rear differential cover myself.

However, I was lazy and let the dealer install my front cover when I went to get an oil change. I won't let that happen again. Why have the dealer do something I can do myself, plus it isn't that difficult.
I went ahead and changed the gear oil as well as the bolts. I learned some good lessons, thankfully they weren't costly.
