New Guy

Hi to all Prowler owners. I recently bought a 1000, really like the power and feel in the dunes. Have had it out twice and it goes anywhere and everywhere. Put it in four wheel drive, five pounds of air in the tires and don't look back.

I do however, have a problem with the rear differential seals leaking. I am taking it in today to get them fixed. Does anyone else have this issue and is this going to be an ongoing problem.

Welcome to the site.
Make sure your dealer is only filling the diffs to about 1 inch below the oil plug hole. Most mechanics, unless they read the tech bulletins, want to fill the diffs tell the lube is running out the hole. This causes too much pressure in the diff and pushes oil out the seals. You can take it back to the dealer, have them put new seals in, but make sure they only fill it to around an inch below the hole.
I've built an accumulator tank with high up bellows on my rear diff to keep it from leaking, so far, after running the ^%$&# out of it, no leaks...
