Jerry Bransford The red stuff is very likely ATF from either the transfer case or if you have an automatic transmission, from the transmission. You're gonna have to get underneath and start looking to see where it is leaking from. Once you find the source of the leak, post a photo of the source of the leak here.

The off-center steering means something is bent... tie rod, drag link, or track bar. Is the steering wheel positioned too far to the right or to the left?

leaking transmission fluid and power-steering issue

ok so me and some friends were out last night and we were off road and just happend to get stuck in a ditch about 5 feet deep. we were anchored on the middle of the jeep with the back tires off the ground. we got out after a while but i noticed that the steering wheel was misaligned and made a harsh grinding sound when we turned to the right. also there was a decent amount of red fluid leeking (not a lot but not a little amount) so im just curious what the possible problems/ solutions there are, and the price range. i hadn't had my jeep for too long so im not too knowledgeable about this kinda stuff. any help is much apreciated
