Oil Leak ???

I have an oil leak and it is either the rear of the oil pan or the back of the valve cover as I have learned is also common. The problem I see is that I cant see behind the valve cover or get a hand behind it to check it out. Does anyone know a tip or trick that will help get the valve cover and firewall apart a little bit to get in a check to see which end of the motor is leaking?

Have someone with small hands, wife, girlfriend, child, midget....reach behind the valve cover. Being a Jeep its probably leaking from both places.
