Quick ? Oil too low just under crosshatch?

I just changed my oil and its right under the crosshatch about 15 min after start up. Can I make it to the part store to get a quart more without issues? thanks.

Not sure exactly how many qts. are in it now, thats the problem I had a 5 gallon bucket (with about 1.7 gallons left) from the last change and I knew it wasn't enough to do this change so I just another gallon and figured I be good... Nope. I'll another quart before or after work, My work is about a 25 mile ride so maybe I should get it on the way and pay the gas station too much for the oil ha.

If you have put almost 3 gallons in it then you are still at least 3 qts. low

on my last truck, somehow i didnt pay attention to the oil level and it stalled from lack of oil. the oil stick was clean. 1 gal brought it up to the bottom of the stick tip.

Aslong as it runs and you aren't beating on it or towing, then you're good.

Cool thanks guys, I have read that these trucks will shut down from lack of oil before damage but I just wanted to be sure.
