Leaky Transmission

I have a '93 YJ with the 4 cyl. and the five speed manual transmission. I have found that I am loosing a fair amount of gear oil from the transmission, but due to the blowing wind and a slow rear main seal leak it is hard for me to find out were the transmission is leaking. I currently have to add gear oil about every 2 or 3 months to the transmission because I can feel that it just wont shift like its supposed to.

I was wondering if anyone could just help me by telling me some of the most common leak spots for the manual transmission and what is required to fix them (new gaskets/seals ect.)
