Just told they are replacing my rear passenger axle as well. I'm going to pick it up now and will bring it back next Wednesday once they get the part. It's a 2021. I'll get the MDH once it gets home.Guys whose seal is leaking what is the year and MDH(sticker inside driver door frame M=month, D=day, H=hour ) of your truck?
It could just be they don't have the service manual and steps for changing a seal on a rear axle. These techs now-a-days are suppose to fix things by a step-by-step procedure put out by FCA. Even though they've probably done it a thousand times on a JL or JK. Since JTs are relatively new all the service procedures haven't been developed or published to the techs yet. This happened to me with a sunroof on a brand new car that had a slider break. Instead of replacing a $100 part with labor they authorized a $8k repair of cutting out and replacing the entire roof because FCA hadn't supplied the techs with the necessary steps in replacing the broken parts. If it seems stupid it's because it is.But you wouldn’t normally change an axle for a damaged seal. This fishy to me and experience tells me there is more to it than FCA cares to admit at this point.
