Unless you are 'mud-running' this truck, you have more probs than the seal! And if it hasn't been topped up???? OMG The oil plug is on the front right side near the yoke. Your best bet is to get a complete rear axel from a wrecker. It will cost way too much to have bearings and what not replaced! Your best bet is to buy it installed. My quess is under $200!

I had the same problem on a recent trip to Mozambique.I found a very knowledgable mechanic in Komatipoort! He says it is always the left rear CV that works hardest when towing a heavy trailer / boat etc. A circlip works loose inside the diff...he repaired mine in less than an hour and it cost me R450-00 including the new oil! He also bent the new circlip slightly oval to prevent future occurances.
Do not drive like this for a long period without having it fixed.!

SOURCE: Rear Differential Seal Leak
No. This is a cheap repair even if you take to Chrysler or any repair facility. All they do is drop the drive line and remove the pinion nut and remove the seal and tap the new one into place. Should only take them about an hour at most to do this.

It appears you have a Forward Clutch FAILURE. Replace the trans after you get it diagnosed and verified by a professional technician. By the way, do you have a Check Engine light? If so, what is the diagnostic code? The dealership can scan the system and find any codes which may have been stored in the TCM (Transmission Control Module). If there were any 'Incorrect Gear Ratio" codes, it's most probably the trans itself.
