2014 lower oil pan gasket?

My truck is 6yra old 51k miles... Out of warranty... And I have an oil leak coming from the back of my oil pan.

I know it's probably the upper pan, but I want to try resealling the lower pan before figuring out how to pay for the upper to be replaced. Lol.

Pretty certain rtv is used from the factory, but I'd prefer a gasket if one exists for it.

What are your guys thoughts on this?

I think the best thing to do first would be to verify where the leak is coming from. If it is leaking from the top of the upper pan, I would see no reason to pull the lower off until you were gonna tackle the upper.

YouTube has a good vid of that procedure -- dude has it on a lift, but I think jack stands would work fine

There are some "primer" wipes and of course the good gray silicone is used

General note:
For all those wanting a premium silicone sealer Kubota 70000-73764 is the best your gonna find. This is a hybrid gray silicone that uses solvent rather than acid to start the curing reaction, this makes it safe for aluminum and and any surface that involves coolant.
