Yeah, my TJ was doing that - except it seemed like it was only when the fluid would get pretty hot. I ended up replacing it with a reman'd Durango box. I never tore into it to see what was leaking, but I suspect it was a seal. Seems like Autozone/Checkers/etc has rebuild kits for pretty decent prices.

A little over $200. The core was about $100 though.
