Exclamation Need help, front axle problem.

G’day
I own a 2000 Jeep Wrangler TJ, I found out that there is oil leaking in the front shaft joints and the front axle as shown below pictures.





Any help that can be provided would be really appreciated

Thank you.

That's nothing more than a leaky pinion seal that is both inexpensive and relatively easily replaced. If you're not handy with tools, any 4x4 shop or mechanic can easily replace it. It takes about an hour and the part is under $20. If you want to do it yourself, a very durable brand of replacement seal is Chicago Rawhide.

Now is a good time to upgrade that pinion yoke. I like the UBolt style yokes much better.
