Sad start to your JL journey :(
Hope they get this straightened out ASAP and you can eventually get back to happy.
G'luck!

I have no idea I was hoping someone could tell me what it is....
If you want to be a Jeeper, you need to learn your oil colors , and smells, at the very least .

Oil droplets look awfully red to me. Just dirt?

Looks awfully beat up for 3 months old...did you break in your new engine and components?

Funny you should ask. I popped the hood on my 3 month old 2019 JLU this afternoon and discovered a possible coolant leak. Reservoir was below minimum line and there was some pinkish fluid stains on a few hoses and splattered around a bit. I received my first service notice from the dealer this week as I’m now at about 5200 miles. (How did they know?) Will be at the service department first thing Monday morning without an appointment. I was planning a getaway to Maine for this upcoming holiday weekend. Hope this is a quick fix the dealer can take care of before my planned departure on Thursday after work. If not, Plan B is a two wheeled cruise down the Blue Ridge Parkway. Early forecast for Maine is rain anyway. Riding the bike in chilly rain is no fun. Nice to have options.

Maine?! No kidding...I love it up there.
I wouldn't ride up it's cold up there now.
I headed to NY, Mirror lake next week.

Btw was below line because I'm sure your Jeep was off and not running. And the dealer knows everything. You know your monthly health report you get? Well.....

Yeah rear main or front pump seal but it doesn't look like ATF.

Let's just hope it was a shitty seal and not a crankshaft going "0"

I swear my oil pan gasket is leaking on the left side, noticed it around maybe 4000 miles LOL

Are either one of them difficult repairs?

Based on where it's leaking...that's my guess. Not a fun job to fix but not overly complicated either. A competent mechanic should be able to get it changed out for you under warranty and you shouldn't have more problems with it.
Thanks for info...I will let you know Monday

Our tranny pan gasket is leaking...I'm pretty sure. Not much, but enough to cause a film.
I’m not sure just very disheartening since it’s only a few months old and have had several problem already
