OIL LEAKING ACROSS REAR OF OIL PAN, ANY IDEAS

I have suddenly started getting a good amount of oil leaking from around the rear of the oil pan. I've looked up at the bed pan seal and don't see anything wet on the drivers side that high but on the passenger side it appears a little wet that high up but not to the point of losing as much oil as I'm seeing dripping on the drive way.

Are there any sensors on the passenger side above the starter that cold leak oil? Praying for anything other than a bed pan seal

I had something similar turned out it was the main seal. U better pray it's not the bed plate seal if so that cawksucka is gonna have to be yanked out and taken apart!

I guess I'll put some dye in it and see if I can better determine it's source.

Are bed pan leaks common on these 6.0's? I haven't put the dye in yet but will probably do that over the weekend.

How bad of a job is it to replaced the rear main seal if that turns out to be the problem?

drop the trans for the rear main seal. Ive heard bed plates are not common.

I've pulled a 4L60E trans from a 4.8L Silverado which wasn't too bad. Other than being much heavier how bad is removing the Torqshift from the 6.0L?

piece of cake to remove a torqshift out of a diesel. if you have a jack large enough you can leave the transfer case connected

ratchet strap that ***** down though, you don't want it coming off
