I went to put the TJ in the garage last night and saw little small puddle in the driveway, took a look in the dark and really could not "see" anything just the skidplate being coated. I am new to all this so and do not have a clue so please keep that in mind...
Crawled around under it this morning and tried to get a feel for where it was coming from. It does not appear to be the RMS as it is farther towards the back of the jeep. the liquid is not really "red" like transmission fluid more clear if that makes sense. These pictures are the best I can get of the area right now, will have to drop the skidplates to get a better idea. I am not sure what this area is called but this is right before the driveshaft connects to the rear diff.
It is not a huge leak but it is something that just started so it has me concerned. I checked my engine oil and transmission fluid levels and they seem to be OK right now. the questions I have are what/where could the leak be, should I be worried (as in don't drive the jeep), and is it that bad to repair? I am hopefully going to get it in the shop sometime the next couple of weeks to get it re-geared and can have this looked at as well unless it is a DIY project that is moron proof
My main concern is causing more issues if I drive it until it is fixed I do not want to do that but I don't really want to drive my truck in this weather! Thanks for any help and insight folks!
