Stumped

So I have noticed that the whole bottom of my UCF ultra high skid is covered with ATF. I do not see any leaks from the transfer case although all I can see is from the back. I cannot imagine it is a tranny leak although I cannot rule anything out. The SYE was done about a year ago and from what I can see of the tranny from the front everything is dry. I am hoping someone has had this same problem as I am stumped.

If no leaks present check the lines going to radiator. Fluid leaks tend to travel. With out pictures kinda hard to tell you. Check the easy first

Mines leaked since I got it. A little from where the tcase fits the trans and a little from one of the yokes for some reason. Actually checking my levels tomorrow. It's a slow leak.

My tcase had a leak that I was having trouble finding... it turned out to be a nick in the o-ring for the speedometer gear housing. I must have cut it while reinstalling the speedometer gear housing after changing the speedometer gear. The leak took a while to start, it didn't start right after the speedometer gear was replaced.

The leak came from either the output tranny shaft seal or the input transfer case seal. I replaced both and now there is no leak. Had to remove the transfer case, but that was easy.

When I changed my clutch I pulled my t case for fun/knowledge. When I separated the 2 some red fluid leaked out. It wasn't a large amount but enough to wonder wtf as I didn't think fluid connected them. In my case I'd say a 1/4 cup came out. It was over a long period of time it had been building in there as it wasn't leaking out. And I have 137,000 and change both every 30,000. I'm never low. I have a 5 speed. Just cool to know you can have a leak there and never see it.
