Thumbs up New Member/Southern CA-High Desert

Hi, new owner of a Jeep,
Never owned one, this is my first! Purchased in September 2010 a used-Black 1998 Jeep Wrangler Sahara 4.0l V6 5spd manual transmission, w/hard top. Done some work to it myself to get it smog/registered and on the trails/road-so I installed a new Aluminum Radiator w/hoses, new Water Pump, Mr. Gasket 195 thermostat, new Harmonic Balancer, new Serpentine Belt. Had some electrical problems with all dead gauges, but I had it repaired by a local electrical repair shop, and had them install a new under the hood light, which the original wasn't working neither. Brought 5 new Goodyear MT/R Kevlars 31x10.5-15 w/black Steel 98 wheels, and installed myself the Daystar 1.75 spring spacers w/their bumper stops for now, till I can save enough for a different lift kit, hopefully a long arm kit-like the Rubicon Express? But just the other day I noticed that I'm experiencing a bad leak coming from the passenger side front part of the transmission, don't know what to do now? This is what brought me to join this forum while trying to do some research on the web. Looking forward in experiencing a lot more with this forum-Thanks!
