Leaking transfer case?

I've noticed some oil residue on the front end of my transfer case where the front drive shaft meets with it. It's getting sprayed all the way up to the underbody and all around that area, so it must be leaking on the shaft to get thrown all over the place like that.

So what could be leaking? Is there a seal there like the pinion seals going into my differentials? I just changed one pinion seal today and I have to do the other soon too, so might as well get this done while I'm at it.

Speaking of which, is the fact that both my pinion seals and my transfer case were leaking when I bought this Wrangler sufficient to suspect someone had it in water?

Not really. I replaced pinion seals, transfercase output shaft seals, and the rear main seal at least once.

So back to my main question, is that what I need to change on my transfer case?

I guess if only the seal is causing the leak there for sure, then you would need to change the seal. However, in rare cases, the bearing could have gone bad or the yoke itself causing the leak.
