Default Transaxle leak???

Anyone know why there would be gear oil dripping out of this hole where the TC bolts to the trans? Is it possible that I over filled it? Or is there a bad seal in there?

I have one in that exact spot right now and it's transmission fluid not Redline shockproof in my transfercase. I'm thinking the output shaft seal is leaking slightly on mine.

It's easy enough to pull the T case and have a look, I'd start with that and follow the trail. It'd be bad news to run one of them dry.

I'd likely say it is the output shaft seal or your drivers side axle seal.

Pull the tcase and follow the trail.

I think I will over the weekend. It's not an obscene amount...I put an empty coffee can under it last night around 10pm. When I looked this morning, there was maybe a teaspoon worth of 80w90 in it.

Is it where the T-case meets/borders the tranny? If so i have this problem as well and was told by someone on here that it was the output shaft seal in the transmission.
