02 tranny fluid pouring out

Got home from work and found a river in my driveway. Crawled under the X and found tranny fluid all over the underside. I have an ISSPRO tranny gauge and was running 160 degrees all day.

Vehicle is a 2002 excursion 7.3 4wd with 118k. Never towed much of anything. I serviced the tranny around 3k miles ago and changed the filter and installed aftermarket valve body. Truck is stock, no chip.

First picture is where it is leaking from, right at the mating surface. Second picture is my driveway after 10 seconds of waiting for garage door to go up.

Thoughts? Is this a common issue? Will the tranmission need to come out to diagnose?

I've never pulled a tranny or driveline before. I've pulled a turbo, installed and egr delete kit on a cummins, installed lift kits, but never a tranny. With the right tools is this a job I should even consider taking on?

The only thing there is the flywheel and torque converter. I would venture your torque converter crapped out, or your front seal gave up. You can definitely pull it if you desire. Nothing a jack, jack stands, and a few wrenches can't do.
