08 Job 1 truck? Looks like the external transmission filter. My trucks a job 2 so it doesn't have the external filter, just internal.

That's exactly what that is but the oil isn't dripping from that. You either have a glowplug seal leaking, bedplate leaking (oil pan gasket- 3 total) or rear main seal leaking. If its rear main, pop that little black grommet out on the bell housing right above the tranny filter and if there's oil all up in there then it's a rear main seal. It also could be the sensor above the front cover on driver side leaking as that is a common leak

You wouldn't happen to know the cost on giving each of those would you?

Bedplate seal replacement requires cab off or tranny out. Labor was $2200 under warranty and the parts were like $150. Glow plug seal replacement was like $150- requires a new glow plug harness- but I paid my tech on the side since I know him. And that other sender by the front cover I remembered its the CAM sensor, he did it on the side for $50- with a good light u can see it through the driver fender well area by the belt.

What about the rear main seal? I'm guessing most of these can't be driveway fixes?

Look at each valve cover and check the glow plug seals, Check for the cam sensor, and pull that rubber grommet out on the bell housing and check for rear main seal and look around the oil pan joint

I have no idea about the rear main, I'm pretty sure it requires tranny out which is a biatch in the driveway. I've never torn out a 4x4 tranny with transfer case so I have no idea. I have removed several 2x4 trannies and it was a biatch lol.

Seriously about to call the dealership and return this truck, I love it but not worth the headache it's been in just a week.
