Hub Flange Leaking

Hub cap on the flange split and started leaking. No fluid on the backside of the wheel.

Thoughts on whether it's just the cap, or the seal should be replaced as well?

Also, check your breather tubes. I just took a 600mi road trip and I checked all my fluids and since I had never checked mine, I went ahead and took the 5 minutes to check them. It was plugged so tight with crap I had to cut off a couple inches and drill out the fitting. Horrid. Glad I didn't blow a hub seal. I try and yearly check my fluids and tubes, but this was a new-to-me (ish) truck and had probably not been checked in a decade.... Of course my 5 minute check turned into 1/2 hour :)
