Oil leak?

Guys, took my truck out today and found this puddle in my driveway.

Coming somewhere from the front end. I had oil and fuel filters changed recently, has no smell so I'm assuming oil. Fuel filter wasn't leaning. Any ideas where I should look for the leak?

could just be where they didnt clean up thrir mess from the oil/filter change. Is the oil level dropping?
My 2011 has two oil leaks currently. One is the plastic oil pan that I hear there is an update for, the other is leaking from some unknown seals on the top side of the cylinder head that is scheduled to be repaired at the next O/C. Repairing dealer has said it will take 1.5 days to fix due to the need to remove the cab for repair.

Wow that sucks I was expecting a plastic oil pan horror story. I got home and me and my friend got under and figured out that it power steering fluid leaking out of the pump itself, not a single line around it was wet so it must be leaking when pressurized.
I've mentioned to the dealer that my steering has been screwy since the day I got the truck, now they can fix it for free lol!

I think I may have the same cylinder head leaks..... At first I thought turbo seal, but now that I have read your post, you can see where the oil looks like it is coming from somewhere on the back of the heads....

I seen an oil spot and started looking, you can see the oil up high on the tranny, so I assumed turbo seal, not thinking about the heads.... But I will have the dealership look at both...

My 2011 is currently having front crank seal replaced because of leaking oil. Only 30, 000 miles. Dropped it off on Wednesday and they said be ready Friday. Today they called to say it won't be ready till Monday afternoon now cause the vacuum booster is leaking oil. Now I become concerned about the oil leaks on a truck that has only 30k miles on it.

Picked up truck on Monday and went on the road Monday evening. 2000 miles later and no oil showing underneath. Hopefully that was it and it's fixed....
