Transmission leak

Hey guys. Need some help finding my leak. Its 100% the tranny because now my runner is having a rough time shifting. Idle is extremely high also. Anybody have experience or advice to help me find this leak?

Have you checked the level and topped it up so you doesn't ruin it, rough shifting is not a good way to determine fluid level. These trucks have a 100% failure rate on the radiator if left to long, the tranny line inside the rad can corrode and exchange fluids with the radiator. Also the pan sealant can fail and the lines, so either it is leaking it somewhere visibly and you find it yourself, or it could be the rad.
