Oil in the air filter?

Hey Guys,
I just got my first YJ and I've been poking around the engine a bit and I found that the PCV filter is saturated in oil and there's even a bit pooling in the bottom of the filter assembly. Im not too familiar with the 258 but is this normal, and if not what could it be?
TIA
James

The same thing happnes on my CJ. I don't worry about it that much because it doesn't seem like there's enough there to actualy enter into the crab.
