19Wrangler91 Brentd, pretty much as you said it.. the leak was from the break line and dripped through the skid plate.

Ok thanks for that.. I will poke my head under there tomorrow and see if that's the issue, but sure sounds like it.

Would the tranny or transfer case be leaking brake fluid?

check your hard line along the inside of the driver side frame rail
I checked the driver side, but the leak is coming from below the passenger side. Below the seat.

leak from front section of master cylinder reservoir

After filling the front reservoir of my91 yj. I checked the bottom of the jeep and noticed there was a leak near the catalytic converter. Does the break line run thru that path?
