Well despite all the troubles with my truck I have a new one appear now...on the ground under the middle of the truck is a medium size fluid of some kind, does not look like oil, nor water or it would have evaped. Someone told me it could be my diferential fluid or transmission fluid? Is there a difference? The transmission fluid level looks good by the stick, so not real sure what the fluid is.

The transfer case and the transmission both use ATF.
The front and rear diffs use gear oil.
The engine uses motor oil.
