Another Rear Main Question

Hey guys,

I have had my Jeep for 4 years now and the rear main has begun to leak. No dripping but the area in between the oil pan and tranny is wet. Also, I can smell it burning after a longer drive. Smells kind of sweet like a clutch or hydraulic fluid burning.

Now here is where I show my non mechanical ability: I have a 2001 4.0 5 speed. Where the hell is the dipstick for the tranny? I cant find it! Any hel would be appreciated!!! Sorry for the newb question!
Hold my beer! Buuurp!

I don't have a standard on my Jeep, but my experience with standards is that no standard has a dipstick- that's an auto tranny thing.
