Possible leak?

Pull into the driveway in the jeep, get out, and notice a rainbow colored trail leading down the street into my driveway. Got under the car - no visible leaks. No discernable smell that I could detect. Dipsticks for oil and trans show a good level of both fluids. Same discoloration was also on the driver side front tire and door - it's drizzling/sleet so it's possible that if the jeep is leaking something it splashed up, but it's also possible that it's not the jeep that's leaking. Drove perfectly normal too. Thoughts?

Sounds like you've driven through a patch of something oily. My D2 leaks hydraulic fluid occasionally...

Could be water or condensate you drove through washing oily crud off the bottom of the Jeep, too.

Yeah turned out to be nothing. It was just weird seeing that streak all down my street and into the driveway. No issues though.
