Leaking from?

Ok, A few weeks ago I had to take my 08 F-250 into the shop because the power steering fluid was leaking, and I told them to check for another leak because I noticed a spot leaking from the center between the front wheels. Well I let a few weeks pass thinking maybe it was just residual fluid finding its way down to earth. Well now I am pretty sure it isn't. A) It's not red, it's a light brown color. B) I can see it leaking from the frame that is parallel with the steering bars. Well that is about all I have, I look up into the motor from the bottom and it looks clean. I can't see where it is actually coming from. I was wondering if anyone else ever had a similar problem. It isn't the same color as my engine oil, and definitely not the transmission fluid. ALSO, I have had to add coolant 2 times since I've owned it in a little less than 3 months. If anyone could help, that would be great, I don't want to take it in again for them to tell me nothing is wrong.

Mine started leaking two weeks ago in the same spot. Mine is dead center between the front tires but about eight inches behind the radiator. There is a hose that runs down then turns, so to me, it looks like it may run down the hose then leak to the ground where the hose bends. It hasn't leaked for a week and everything looks dry at the moment but im thinking it could either be an O ring or maybe the egr cooler leaking. I do'nt know the symptoms of an egr leak but i was listing possibilities.

I've already had the rad replaced and that leaked down the frame and inside of the front tire.

My trans and oil pan weep oil so needless to say im not very pleased.
