Well here is an update. Driving down the highway, truck felt like it was slipping/loosing power. Was taking quite substantial throttle to maintain 100kph. Few seconds later I seen the trans temp was at 180, around 30-45 sec later the truck seemed to slip into neutral. I could rev it, but no movement forward. Pulled off to the side of the road and the trans temp was at 210. Smoke coming from under the truck and a light metallic rattle coming from the transmission hump.
After shut down and the smoke cleared, I looked under the truck and there is about 1 liter of fluid on the transfer case and cross member. Started it back up, checked the fluid which was still full, but there was a slight gray tint to what used to be nice and pink. As I waited 1.5 hours for a tow truck, the trans cooled off, so I figured I would try it. Very hard to get into drive, gear selector felt wrong. Drive felt like neutral etc. Very slow to engage drive/reverse, could rev the motor and the truck would creep or suddenly lurch ahead or backwards. So no 1,2,3 or drive or reverse.
