Atf fluid in the garage floor.. so what's leaking?

Hey guys..

I have a 2011 with around 76k on it. Its practically been parked since the snow left us in April but has been driven to work occasionally, etc. A few weeks ago, I backed it out to clean the garage and wash the jeep. No fluid then. It hasn't been moved since. Last night I was going to drive it to pick up some coolers and... boo... ATF fluid in the floor. There's a lot more on the skid plate. Is this a transfer case leak?

The torque converter has been replaced on my jeep while trying to fix the fish bite, but it has been over 2 years since the replacement. I'm hoping a tasked or seal wasn't replaced and is now leaking.

I have little knowledge on this side of things. What appears to be leaking?

I know the 2011 steering racks have a tendency to have boots that leak. So it could be the transfer case or transmission as well. Those are the only 3 components that use ATF. Check the boots on the steering rack mine went bad.

Honestly, you're going to have to get under there and figure out where the fluid is coming from. Once you locate the drip, take a picture and post it up, then we can help.
