Bad Luck!!

I know this might be a stupid question, but I will ask anyways. This morning I noticed my front dif. is leaking, but it is a kinda slow leak. Is it possable to fill it up again and drive with it leaking, and what will happen if it runs dry and I use 4wheeldrive off and on at low speeds?? As I said it is probly a "do not run it", but I want to go driving on the trails this weekend.

Just make sure it's full when you go out and don't go in any mud or water where it'll get submerged. Then get it taken care of as soon as possible. That is if it's a slow leak.
