Looks like that drain plug at the top of the picture (oil pan?) is leaking a bit, too.

Is it a '14? I was talking to a jeep tech today that said eventually two little plugs on the side of the oil filter housing will eventually start leaking. Fwiw he said he pretty much never sees any common problems with the '14's so that made me feel better.

I have a '12 with just under 60k that has oil leaking from those plugs. I haven't played with them yet, but I saw them described as inspection ports somewhere? I'm taking it to the dealer this Friday.

Oil Leak

I also have an oil leak. I've heard it is the rear main seal from a couple of buddies down here but I wanted to see what the everyone on here thinks. I was out wheeling and hit a tree stump with my transmission cross member. I was going about 5 mph and it brought me to a dead stop and left a nice crescent moon shaped dent in the cross member. When I went and replaced the cross member with a rough country heavy duty cross member, that is when I noticed the leak. I still have the factory warranty and an extended warranty but I don't know if it will be covered because I changed out the cross member. Here is a picture of where the leak is coming from. It is a 2014 JKU 6 speed manual.
