New here! I bought a secondhand 2008 2dr as a pet project. I've owned a couple Wranglers in the past, but this is the first time I'm doing well enough at work that I can afford to mod the vehicle. Plan is restore/replace/upgrade all the core components then lift it with some new shoes. Got it home and noticed a drop on the driveway, and crawling under I saw what I initially thought was a dirty transmission leak, but upon further review it may be oil dripping down from the oil pan as that's wet. Thoughts on this? I am hoping its the oil pan as that gasket will be an easier DIY task than taking apart a trans.

Hoping to make some friends here, looking forward to building the Jeep I've never been able to do afford before!

Noted, thanks.
I'm gonna clean it down and run it up to see where it's coming from. I've had my share of 'good enough' Wranglers in the past, I want something I can be proud of for keeping in top shape. I will look at the bolts.
