All transfers in those models will eventually leak because of where the pump mounts in the housing. Fix is simple and cheap as long as you catch it early. Mine started at around 150,000 miles. Good news is it a DIY job if you have any mechanical ability. I did the guard that goes over the pump and a full bearing kit for $85 plus the cost of a jb weld kit to patch the hole in the housing. Tranny cooler lines are going to also leak behind the front bumper where they go from metal to rubber and back. There are many after market fixes for them that arent crazy expensive. Even the fuel pump is reasonable, $500-$700 for factory rebuilds. These are however, an incredible PITA to change. Everything but the turbo comes off the top and everything comes off the front.

Change filter regularly and you wont be changing pumps and injectors. Just installed a new set of injectors on mine at just under $3000 for all 8.
