It's not messy if you use a tip that is usually included with the tubes of RTV these days. The messiest part about changing my differential lube was the lube itself, not the RTV. Just make sure you are thorough with the RTV application. I put 3 constant beads of RTV around my differential cover just for insurance. Not a leak thus far *knock on wood*.
