RubiChick The cable shown ... the attached piece was loose. So this made fluid leak out?? The jeep is stock aside from the lift and exhaust. Also, there is a plate covering underneath so Im puzzled as to how it came loose.

Coupled possibly with a possibly cut/nicked o-ring like was mentioned above.

I found pics hopefully this will clarify all the confusion. The shop is replacing the cable w/ the speed sensor.

The shop is replacing the speed sensor cable because the bolt is dented. With that said if the bolt isn't in then it can leak fluid from the transfer case? I was afraid that the transfer case was cracked but the tech said it isn't. What could be the cause of this from happening?

Speed Sensor coming lose ..

My speed sensor (cable) came lose so my speedo wasnt working. Since it came lose it was spitting trans oil. I thought the cable just attaches to the tranny. I could be wrong.
