Depending on where I went, how hard I drove, how far I drove would determine how much oil was lost and how big of a mess I left under my truck when parked. The undercarriage was an absolute mess. I am not a professional mechanic but with a lift, I was able to drop the tranny and replace main seal in about 4 hours. If nothing else, for piece of mind, I would do it.

I would agree...change it...gotta get time!
I guess if it gets worse I'll make time huh..
Still oily and wet, but after the lucas treatment hasn't lost 1/4 qt in 1000 miles.
Just buying time at the moment since the rain stopped and I got lots of work!

Seems I remember a story of a rear seal going and loosing all the oil in short order.
Anybody ever heard such?
