the pan gasket doesnt go bad , and isnt a gasket at all but is special silicone made just for that application, very seldom see one leak, and if it does leak, generally doesnt leave a puddle , is usually just a seep to very slight leak, more than likely if you have a puddle under the truck, need to look on top of the engine in the valley its proably wet in there and running down, there is a hole in the back that allows the oil to run out the back of the engine and drips on the ground between the trans and the engine

sorry i thought you meant oil leak from oil pan, if you just noticed the leak oly after towing a car , then that would be the front seal in the trans , front pump seals are fairly commo to leak , especially after towing or during towing , the trans gets hot and pukes fluid out the front, probably newd to get seal replaced , may even want to add an extra trans cooler
