I don't know, but I am hoping to find out, where I am bleeding oil. I seem to be leaking quite a bit lately. Here's a question:
It seems that it is coming out the back side of the Jeep. I've heard that if the gasket on the valve cover is worn out, it will leak from there and then come out from around the skid plate. Has anyone else ever witnessed that phenomena?
You should be able to reach back behind your valve cover and feel for oil if it is leaking. If not it could be a rear main seal leaking, but I don't think either would end up on your skid plate. I believe that they would show up where your engine and tranny meet.

Mine was coming out the oil cap. It would drip and air would carry it everywhere. It was coming off the starter, where the trans/engine marry, then off the skid plate. The valve cover had been replaced and once I stopped after driving you could see it running down the cover. New oil Cap with felpro gasket added and new vacuum lines fixed it.
Take it to a power car wash and clean the undercarriage and engine really well. Then run it a short distance and then crawl underneath and start looking. A bad valve cover gasket will cause what you are seeing but so will a bad rear main so best to clean it good and have a look.

Not too long ago I replaced the plastic elbow at the back of the value cover. The one I used had a small hole, so I drilled as large a hole (about 3/8 inch) as possible in the elbow. Reinstalled it and more oil leak.
When I cleaned the CCV there was this plastic piece in the tube that connects to the front of the value cover. What is it for
