Default 2005 Grand Cherokee Leaking Oil- Anyone else have oil leaks?

I recently bought a 2005 Grand Cherokee with 3.7. It has developed an oil leak on the back side of the motor. I am wondering if anyone else has had problems with this motor or heard of common spots to check for the leak. I really dont want to pull the whole motor to look but it is along the firewall somewhere. I have taken care of the trans oil cooler line that always leaks. It seems like the oil is comming more from passenger side because it is pooling on the passenger side of the skid plate in the front. Any help would be great.

After owning this grand for a month now I would not advise anyone to buy a jeep that doesnt have the 4 litre straight six drivetrain. It has been nothing but transmission problems and sensor problems and now oil leak with 105k on the clock. I would much rather get 4 mpg less and have a reliable drivetrain. Rather upset with Jeep, they definetly dropped the ball with the new models. Im starting to feel the Just Empty Every Pocket syndrome. Probably selling after I fix and buying an older Grand.
