Oil on rear wheel

Just as I was returning home from a ride today on my "08" LT I noticed that the rear brakes weren't working very good. When I pulled into the garage and parked the lady I started to inspect her and I noticed a fair amount of what looks to be like gear lube on the rim It was dark grey in color, and as I looked around a little further and found that the oil seemed to be dripping from the rubber boot on the drive shaft. I haven't taken off the tie rap or clamp yet, as I wanted some opinions as to what it might be. The bike has about 9500 miles on it and the gear oil was changed last year.
