Really the only way is through the back of the master but it would have to leak through the hydro boost too.

Either that it it is wicking down a wiring harness into the cab.

Are you having to add brake fluid to the master?

Is it a manual trans truck by chance?

yikes, i had a small leak on one of the fittings on the master cylinder and the leak traveled down harnesses to the the firewall and wheel well. There are two fittings with " I believe15mm" nuts on them on front of the master cylinder. One had a slight leak. I just tightened those two fittings and problem was solved.

upper right corner of pic shows the 2 lines with fittings. if you stand in front of the truck they are to the right of the fluid reservoir
