04 6.0 leaking

well i walked outside of work yesterday and i had a pool of something leaking under the drivers side of my truck. it only does it after is has sat for a long time im talking 4+ hours. so last night i checked coolant it was a little low. so i topped it off. didnt drive it at all last night. it sat for over 12 hours, had a bucket under it to catch whatever was leaking. and it didnt leak so i couldnt see what it was. truck does have an EGR delete. Im lost on what it could be. i didnt see any thing after i drove it home last night so i cant really see where its leaking from. I kinda lost here. so anything would help. Thank you

So when you look up at the engine from below, what do you see? Coolant will cling to the engine and you can see the drips ready to come off. Usually any coolant leaks will show drips hanging on the starter or other protrusions on either side. You may even see it in the valley if you look for it, especially if you use Red ELC, even if there are no drips on the ground. Since you said driver's side, the degas and hoses below come to mind, as well as the main hose to the thermostat (frequent drip location) or even the power-steering system.

You need to catch some evidence!
