I pulled the leaking drain plug seal out of the less than 1yr old new t-case. I have several of the drain plug seals for the diffs. The t-case is a solid seal, the diff seal is a crush type seal. Will the diff seal work on the t-case?

In using the crush type diff drain plug seal, which way does the seal go? There is a smooth side and a side that crushes?

Kurt,
The xfer case is aluminum and your diffs are steel. Use the proper gasket. I know your dealer is a long way but having the right parts on hand is something you'll have to plan for before draining the xfer.

I replaced all my drain plugs with these low profile magnetic ones (tcase, tranny and diffs).

I used the old seal from the old t-case. If it leaks I am only out the price of the oil.

Chris,
Where did you buy your plugs at?

Yep the plugs and gaskets are a dealer item. All Pro Off Road sells them mail order for $4 each.

I can't believe how clean the underneath of your truck is. You must either have very clean roads or else you've got a pressure washer...

I think I am the first person to ever put this one in low range. The under side looked like new when I got it.

The leak was not the drain plug seal. It is leaking next to the drain plug. The seal for the front extensiln housing assembly is leaking. As the t-case less than a year old, I will get to find out how Toyota deals with their parts warranty. I installed the t-case my self. I never had a new Toyota part fail.
