Question 2000 Jeep leak, maybe part-time 4WD problem?

Hi. We got hit with the big snowstorm in the Midwest and it's been fun using the Wrangler to get us around. I pretty much only use the 4WD during winter. Within the last year I did do the recommended 4WD service at the prodding of the dealership. Probably unnecessary, but I like to take care of the Jeep.
Today we backed it out of the snow-covered driveway and I saw a trail of black, oil-like drops on the snow. I checked the garage and no stains there, so I think it must only be leaking when the part-time 4WD is in use. Actually, this is probably also the first time we've used the 4WD since the service.
Does anyone have an idea what this might be Hopefully just a seal or something? Not a great time to have to take it in, of course, since it's getting us where we need to go during all this snow!
Thanks for any ideas.

Did you have the differential fluids replaced? Mine leaked after I had it changed and it turns out it just wasn't sealed right.

Looks like, the invoice shows rear diff flush and diff flush.
Hopefully it's a seal problem, like you had. Thanks!
