Coolant Leak?

New to Forum so bear with me.
I have a 2010 6.4 with about 84,000 miles. I do have an H&S Mini Maxx and, DPF delete. Had a coolant leak about a month ago so Ford dealer replaced radiator under warranty. I drive the truck for work anywhere from 100-250 miles per day. I noticed after radiator replacement that I had a puddle on my garage floor the following mornings after driving. Puddle is more towards rear of motor. Took back to dealer and they think head gaskets are blown and won't cover under warranty. Don't quite trust that the dealer techs knows their stuff?

Truck seems to run fine and is not "puking" from overflow bottle.

Any suggestions as to what it may be?

Thinking about putting dpf back on, returning to stock, and taking to another dealer for a second opinion.

Thank you

Take a look at the horizontal EGR cooler. there is a hose on the back side near the fire wall that sometimes leaks. It did on mine. I tightened the clamp about 1/4 turn and all is good since. that was well over 10k miles ago.
