Anybody with newer prowlers have any diff problems?

Hey guys, I know in the past some of us have had a few issues with differential seals leaking (specifically rear axel seal) because of pressure building in them. My question goes to the guys with the newer prowlers 2011 and up. Just curious if this problem has been resolved in the newer models to see if this is something I should be concerned about if I decide to get a new ride in the next couple years. I fixed my problem by drilling the dry cavity just wonder if it still needs to be done on new ones.. I love my ride and was thinking about a 1000 later on in the future..

2010 700XTX Orange -- Custom snorkel, Diff. vent mod (dry cavity), Bighorn 2.0's on custom painted "blacked out" rims, HMF Swamp Series XL with turn down, /// airdam stage 5, Some EPI goodies, Dynatek FS, Chrome headlight covers, Flip out windshield. "Cooler Hauler" ... Sold for another toy but still hangin around

I looked at a demo wildcat that had a little wet around where the axles went in to the diff. Not bad but it was wet. The front diff was dry from what i could see.

I dont think a little wet around the axle seals is a big deal,one buddy of mine has a 2013 T-REX 4 seater and another buddy of mine has a 2012 rzr-s and they are a little damp around the axle seals,I have a 2006 that is dry around the seals,I did the diff mod also,another buddy of mine has a 2010 T-REX and he cant keep the drive shaft seal from leaking.

yeah, a little damp is normal for any seal for sure... just wondering if anybody has had any major issues. Mine are dry around the seals now after doing the mod.. just wondering if I get a new one if it will be worth doing right away.. come on new owners... lets hear it.. good or bad..

Well I almost crapped my pants
Let me start over, bought a 2012 XTX 700 brand spankin new, the other night I joined, making intro and then reading a ton of post which this one was one. now that im home I went out to give the new girl a once over to really see where everything went. Sure as heck the left side axle seal is dripping and gear oil slung all over the left side bracketry.
I have like 2 hrs max and have been breaking it in with some river running in 4 hi and some road running in 2 hi but nothing hard at all.
Called the dealer since I just picked it up Friday.
Oh well I guess that answered the original question as to if its still an issue.
