The rear end has a leak,looks like it is leaking where the yoke that is connected to the drive shaft goes in the rear end.Is this just a rubber seal needs replacing or something more serious and where could I find a schematic with part numbers.TIA

You have a leaking pinion seal. The part number will depend on which rear end you have. To do the job right you need to measure the pinion torque to rotate with a beam type inch pound torque wrench to ensure you get the correct torque back on the pinion nut when you reassemble it.

Looks like a job for a mechanic,what would I expect to pay for this repair?Thanks again Ram Tech!
