Oil leak

I have a after market valve cover. The oil cap is just a rubber plug and I'm starting to notice that I'm having oil leaking from the cap. Is this a common issue since this is a common after market over? Or am I having some pressure build up of some sort. Both pvc valves are new.

I had the same problem at one point. A new cap fixed it.

Jeeps HAVE to leak - that's how they mark their territory.

EVERYTHING's easy for the guy who doesn't have to do it.
