buying used - check the fluids

so I always do a complete fluid change when ever I buy a used vehicle since you really do not know what happened before you got it.

my current new to me truck

.5 qt low on forward diff
1.25 qt low on rear diff
1.5 qt low on transfer case.

not the end of the world but every little bit adds up.

no signs of leaks anywhere.
