OIl leak 13 JKU

I have developed an oil leak on my 13 JKU. It appears to be coming from the top of the back side of the engine. Does not look like an rear main leak. It looks like the leak is coming from the rear valvecover or possibly oil pressure sending unit. I have looked up the process of changing the unit but it looks pretty in-depth. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

My 2012 does the same thing I added a little Lucas and it seemed to have stopped it otherwise it looks to be a valve cover gasket on mine personal which is pretty common on jeeps as old as ours

In my shop we have found that the oil cooler in the valley has a leaking issue that is common to run out the back side of the engine and down. To replace the cooler the intake must be removed not an overlay complicated task but does take some time
