Hi All
Just bought a 2007 patrol, and took it for service at Nissan and the Service Manager said the the front diff/axle had some brown sludge in it. Has anybody flush out the diff/axle with cleaner then replaced all the oil seals and wipers in front axle

Could be a seal has gone and its ran down the axle to the diff. Sludge would be the break down of the oil as you can guess just how it deos if the head gasket goes on the motor. Wipers on the hubs were out over time. Removing one of the bolts in the lower king pins can drain out the water to reduce this. Water can also get in via the breather pipe so check the breather pipe's are free from cracks and are connected. It would pay to buy new hose and extend them further then the standard length if doing wadi crossing.
I seldom see much water so maybe my advice is not so good.
