That line looks like the diff breather vent, but I could be wrong. It also looks like oil, which seems odd, because I don't recollect anything above there that would be leaking oil.

And leaks are never there when you expect them. That's why they are called leaks.

From the crank shaft, is that the front main seal? I don't remember. Obviously there is some seal or gasket that has gone bad that needs replacing.

Look at the front main seal better to see if it's coming from there or above.
