what is this leak?

Sorry to be asking yet again, but my jeep's turning out to be quite the hemophilic... Can anyone help me out with this and what needs to be done to get it to stop?

Just a little sidenote, I don't know if it is related or not, but this only started happening after a massive rain we had out here in AZ...

Okay, so what do I do here? Is this critical, or can it wait a little?

Let me google that for you

Follow these simple steps
1. Mark the driveshaft to the yoke before removing the driveshaft. Careful not to release the needle bearings in the u-joint.
2. Mark the pinion, nut and yoke with a straight line for re-installation later.
3. Remove the pinion nut.
4. Pull seal out, lube the new seal before installing it
5. Reinstall the pinion nut and tighten to the same location as before, then turn 1/8 of a turn more, this will preload the bearings in the pinion shaft. [Use red locktite if re-using same nut]
6. Reinstall yoke and driveshaft to same position as before. [Use some sealant on the inside of the yoke to keep oil from seaping through the splines.
