Question about 2003 Jeep Wrangler
That cover generally does not have a seal but is glued on with silicone. You can fix the leak by removing the cover and scraping off the glue. Clean both surfaces well and while you are in there look at the remaining lube at the bottom and check for any metal debris. if there is a little there, clean it out. Re-fill the diff through the rubber plug on the cover. Do that on level ground, filling 'till the lube begins to run out. If the leak is from that plug, get one from a dealer or a scrapyard before starting the work. There are a few kinds of silicone...I generally use the red version and have no leaks.

SOURCE: Leaking rear axle seal
Yes...You need to also remove the cross shaft for the spider gears (retained by either a bolt or drift pin) and then push the axle inward to remove the "c" clip on the end.
It isn't difficult but you may want to get yourself a haynes or chiltons manual to help a bit.You need to take care that after the cross shaft is out that you don't let the spider gears walk out of the housing.
