looking for help with oil leak, possably rear main seal jeep jk 3.8

This is my first message on the forum.
I've read some comments in the past and understanding that jeeps tend to have oil leaking issues.
I did an oil change about a month ago and noticed that I was missing nearly 2 litres of oil.
Upon further inspection there was some seepage around my oil pan gasket but more so between my transmission and oil pan in the bell housing area or top part of that dust cover.
I've watched videos and believe that I have a rear main seal leak.
Do I have to drop my Transmission in order to replace the rear main seal on a 3.8 JK?
This seal comes with retainer and gasket.
Is there any videos on how to replace the rear main on 2007-2011 Wrangler JK 3.8?
If so could you send me the link.
I shop amazon for parts unless you know of a better place for cheaper. I live in Canada.
Thank you in advance for your time and support.

Since this is our New Member check-in Forum, you should receive more response from the Forum below.

You commented on, I was missing nearly 2 litres of oil. Some of the 3.8 engines burn oil, besides leak it. I strongly recommend that you ALWAYS..check you engine oil level at gas fill ups. If you don't, it may become very costly $$$$$$.
