Tranny leaking??

I seem to have a puddle of tranny fluid under the Jeep after I park it. I have a NV4500 and it's fine if I'm just driving around town, but if I get out on the highway I get a puddle when I get back. I just put a new gasket on the SYE, but haven't touched the transfer case or tranny. It doesn't have many mile on it. Should I just pull it apart and put new gasket on it or is there some kind of overflow I'm not aware of? Thanks!!

Where is it leaking from? What color is the fluid? Is it the trans or the Tcase?

It is red fluid. Dripping right below my tranny mount on the skidplate. I can't find the active leak and there is so much splattered under the Jeep from the wind when driving down the road I'm not really sure how to find the right spot. Figured I'd put new gasket on both halves of the transfer case and also probably where the adapter plate is between the tranny and transfer case on both sides.

Red is ATF, which means your transfer case is leaking. Clean off the fluid, drive it for a little bit, and try to source the leak.
