Rock Damage!! help

SOO I have a problem.. on my 94 lifted ranger.. i must of hit a rock good cause the bolts on the front diff are all scuffed up. Well I look under there today and I have a puddle of gear oil on the ground. Now I looked at the front part of the diff and theres no cracks...? What could it be? could I of somehow cracked the actually diff housing behind the front cover? you really cant see in there cause the front cover curves around the bottom of the diff housing.. what do you guys think? this sucks!

Is the differential cover bent? Take the differential cover off and take a look. Maybe it's leaking out between the housing and the differential cover.

I'd vote for you broke the seal between the cover and the housing.

It's not that easy on a TTB. You have to take the whole axle out.
