Unfortunately my first post on the site is not a good one. Purchased a new Gobi 392 last week in Colorado. Drove it back to Kansas and noticed a spot on the floor under it the next day. The fluid is on the bell housing right behind the oil pan. Took it in thinking it was a rear main seal. They looked and didn’t see any fluid around it, so they are pulling the transmission to see if they can determine what is leaking. Otherwise love it, but not a good start to the relationship.
 
That’s what we call “Jeep Sweat” after its first workout! :ROFLMAO:

But seriously, hope you git’r back soon and in perfect working condition.
 
A lot of Jeeps have assembly lube that drips from certain spots including what appears to be the rear main seal. Mine did too when I first got it and hasn't done it after driving a bit. I'd get that Jeep back and drive it a bit before they go through all this work for nothing.

same thing happened to a friend of mine, run for the hills. he had 4-5 years of constant nightmares. when you get one thats not right, its really wrong.

I heard from another 392 owner the same thing. His had a drip after a week and he kept an eye on it and finally dried up and is bone dry now with 10k miles. I picked it up from the shop and said I was going to put more miles on it and see if it keeps happening or not.

That's your best bet. I have around 5000 miles and the only thing that drips is the oil filter.
