So I installed a Rugged Ridge SYE on my 1990 NP231J and drove fine for about 250 miles then at 263 I went under cuz my speedo stopped working (I used a 1995 harness) and when I went to readjust the speedo housing cuz it's a 29tooth and not a 36 tooth like I need (4.10 gears on 31.65 inch tires) I noticed that there was this awkward fluid on the muffler and in a spray line over the underbelly. Any ideas?? I notice the fork can wiggle a small amount in and out. The seal was dry when I touched it. The inside of the fork was a little wet like where the u joint sits. I haven't removed my t-case drop since installing the cv shaft and t-case but that wouldn't cause this would it?

Did you put that rubber star washer on? Or it could be the muffler is heating grease up and making it sling out.
Grease the U joints to be sure..

Well the grease is red and the ATF is red and whatever it is won't burn off the muffler it just stays...

However when I handle it after letting the exhaust cool remains very very viscous.

I don't remember this kit coming with a star-washer and pictures I'm looking at in the manual don't have one.

Just keep an eye on the fluid level of the t-case and look for red drips on the driveway. Maybe put a piece of white cardboard underneath or something. From the picture it doesn't appear to be a major issue.

I think this might be the star washer Delta is referring to.

Yep, that's it.

Without one, it's not uncommon to have fluid leak through the splines.

There is no situation that cannot be improved with a small but well-placed explosive.

I've seen my share of chewed up seals out the front yoke and for that a little rtv will seal it up on top of the old rubber.

Be sure what fluid it is, don't just assume ATF. It could be u-joint grease, which can be red too. Might be a bad muffler bearing too.

So do I just need to buy one of those washers and install it? I'm not familiar with where exactly it goes but it looks vaguely familiar and I think my old one got reused and was rather beat up....

Yes, it will likely clear up your leak (assuming its coming from the SYE end). Just run a dab of RTV around the collar behind the rubber washer, finger tighten and let sit for an hour, then torque down the output yoke to 150 lb-ft and you should be good.

The AA part is the best price I can find. Of course the shipping is more. I just ordered four of them and a few U bolts and the shipping was $12.
