Could be lower rad hose, thermostat housing or the water pump.

upper and lower radiator hoses leak with regularity on these trucks. It's a crap shoot on which one it'll be, honestly, just change them both while your at it.

When my pump went south, it was leaking onto the crank pulley, and trickling down and dripping off the bottom of the pulley onto the steering linkages. Crawl up under there and see where it's leaking. You should be able to see the upper hose and t-stat housing if you deleted the EGR. Check around the hose ends. Most likely that's your problem.

I just had mine in the dealer last week for a leak, turned out being the upper radiator hose.

Had mine pressure tested and replaced the o-ring on upper hose. would still leak but only while cold. rechecked and found a lose hose clamp on the egr cooler hose. tightened and leak gone.

Mine had several leaks when I bought it. I replaced both upper and lower hose. venturi tee clamp, and a clamp on the egr cooler. Like someone said before just look for the white staining and you'll find your leaks.
