Help** buying jeep jk. Sweating on engine. Pics** timing cover? Crank pulley seal?

So im no stranger to jeeps. Owned 10 4.0l's tjs and xj's. First jk. 2011 3.8. 60,000 miles. Getting a good price on it, id like a 2012 with 3.6 but cant afford one. Anways. The one im looking at. Engine sounds great. Went ok long drive. Nothings wet. Good idle. Just its sweat stained. Ill post a pic hopefully it works. Im guessing timing cover gasket or cranknpulley seal? Thanks

there was a issue with some that had porosity issues with the timing cover. would have thought by now most would have been replaced. they basically leaked right through the covers alloy. Maybe be your issue may not. i would think that the lower section of the cover would be wettest. since sh66 runs down hill.
