Orange RTV is what chrysler uses for axles, even from the factory you had orange RTV. Did they have to use 5 tubes of RTV on your diff cover there? No. When I seal a diff you don't see any RTV at all. Plus I use the Gray RTV, its also an axle sealant but is being phased out by the orange one. The Orange RTV smells horrible which is why I choose the gray one.

I bet you those bolt holes are full of RTV and the threads are now ruined. What a hack.

Chrysler's black RTV is only used in transmission applications because its resistant to ATF, Gear lube would probably leak through it. They also have a dark gray RTV that is used in engine applications because its resistant to coolant.
