Easy LR3 Part ID, Please?

All,
I'm an idiot, I understand that, as I should know what this is, but I don't, so I'll take all expected "you're an idiot" comments...but hopefully one will be followed by the ID of the highlighted part and some advice. I think it's part of the differential on my LR3, and I noticed some oil on it when I did an oil change last weekend. Not a ton, but it appears the rubber seal under the nut is weeping. Smelled of gear oil. I plan on doing the fluid changes on the diffs and transfer case in another 1000 miles as part of the 75,000 service. This is not the pic of my truck, but the best I could find online.
Thanks in advance,
Idiot

That is the the that supports the axle shaft carrier

So the leak is probably the seal or maybe oil from the top dripping on it

If you follow the passenger side axle shaft up you will likely find the axle seal is leaking. I would look in your engine bay next to the expansion tank for the axle breather which has a small one way valve at the top. Its a small plastic line coming up vertically and IIRC it is attached to one of the a/c lines. Clip the top of the breather off and that will probably greatly slow or stop the leak. There is an updated valve that you can put on the top, but I wouldn't bother.
