Drip Drip Drip... Coolant Leak

Found a small leak from my truck this morning... Great. Looks like it may be the hose or the thermostat or such. Really not sure. Any ideas?

Pictures taken from under the driver's side, bottom is facing forward...

I also have found a similar coolant leak on my truck. Does the line that runs from the power steering reservoir to the block have a good amount of coolant on the bottom?....I still have not found the source of my leak.

I can't remember when Ford made the revision. IIRC at the connection if it is white it is the updated one.

Yes check to see if both the upper and lower hoses have white ends. Those are the updated hoses.

I had the same leak from the same area. It was the thermostat gasket. I bought the kit from psdparts.com that consisted of the two motorcraft thermostats with gasket , and the upgraded dual ring hoses for both the lower and upper. (white ends) , filled back up with Rotella ELC. All appears good no more leaks. If I remember correctly the whole kit mentioned above was @$135 not counting the coolant.

Mine is doing the same thing. My Lower radiator hose is leaking at the engine. Just got my box of parts from PSD parts today with the upgraded hoses and t-stats. My 2010 did not have the updated hoses on it. Paid 144 for the kit I believe.
