Did you crawl under the truck and look for a plug on the side of your transmission? It'll either be a protruding square plug for a wrench or a recessed square plug for a ratchet.

That is where you check the level and where you add the gear lube.. the one up on the side, not the bottom one. Just stick your finger in and if you touch oil , you're full. If not, get yourself a bottle of gear lube with a tip on it and squeeze some in until it runs out.. not the neatest, cleanest thing to do but it's effective.
