You need to buy some RTV. There isn't a seal.

Yes there is a seal. Mine leaks slightly. I have the new seal but couldn't get the nut undone. You have to take the prop shaft off. Mark the nut & threads then undo the big nut. When I tried I ended up just moving the truck by turning the nut. I still have to do this job, but will have a go next year now as it don't leak to bad.

what seal are you talking about?

to op, I think some sell a gasket for the rear diff but trust me you are better off using black rtv sealant. The gaskets have been known to leak where the rtv doesn't.

Hold on, which seals are you talking about. You have a pinion seal, a seal on each hub, and the rear cover.

Just use RTV and dont worry about it. I used the red because thats what I had at the house. Just let it set before you put the oil back in. I let mine sit over night and hasnt leaked a drop.
