Oil Pan Leaking?

I think my oil pan is leaking and might have to replace the seal. When I compared the oil that is leaking and by removing the dipstick it looks like its the same oil. Can anyone confirm this by looking at the picture?

Probably not your pan. Looks like it could be the rear main seal. It doesnt look too bad though

Mine was doing the same thing and had to replace the rear main seal. Not hard to replace just a pain to get all the bolts out of the pan and even harder to get them back in. You will need to replace your oil pan gasket while your at it.

How do I get the last 2 bolts off on the oil pan? It looks like its going to be a tight squeeze. On the picture its showing the bolt Im talking about. I'm not sure if I should fix this now. I only have 3 months left in the states as I'll be stationed in Japan for 2 years. It's not severe so maybe I should wait? I dont think this is hard it will just POS. I dont want to take it to the stealership because I want to learn more about my jeep.
