Default What could be causing this?

Just broke down the 8ight 2.0 to refill the diffs and my center diff isn't looking too good. Any idea what could have caused this?

Did a rock get caught under the diff? Something is rubbing.

Yeah that's what I was thinking. Wanted to make sure it wasn't a common thing with the 8ight.

For sure a debris in there, check your chassis close to that area that would indicate if it is a debris..

I'll check the pinion. But the diff cup was leaking, so I tossed it.

No sign of a rock/pebble being stuck between diff case and chassis. Blue anodizing doesn't have a single scuff.
