Unhappy Need help with busted rear pinion seal.

Anyone know of a capable shop that can help me fix this issue? Noticed my rear pinion seal has a big leak looks like a gear fluid blood bath and I'm supposed to drive back to southern CA April 7th. Will I be ok trekking that far with that much of a leak? Ill be willing to get dirty will someone's help but can't at the hotel, I think.

Left jeep with joe and guy rocks. As per my situation he gave me a loaner. No way dealership would've done that.
Thanks a million

Got my jk back, did more than the seal, bearing was wasted aswell. Great group of guys. A little pricey on labor considering I pay 20 less back home. But cool guys and job was done and I'm on the road with no worries.

That could be totally unrelated. Most auto part stores have scanners you can use to read the codes. Find out what the code is and go from there. If it is tune up related, go back and they will fix it.
