you probably put your oil filter on too tight and now it is spitting oil out of the crack, simple fix, change your oil filter, after that use degreaser to clean up all the oil as best you can and when you first start the jeep check for leaks, should be easy to spot if you clean up good, but it probably won't leak if you just hand tighten your oil filter(don't use that tool everyone uses, that's what cracks them
