Power Steering Leak on 2013, low miles. Anyone?

2013 6.7 SCREW FX4 Lariat with 2300 miles

I have a drip leak on the front driver side. At first I thought it was coolant but then found out it was Transmission fluid coming from the power steering. Dealer replaced the gear box but it still seems to be leaking. Anyone have problems with this? Could it be something else? or maybe the dealer did a crappy job of putting the new unit on?

Picked the truck up from the dealer. The fluid dripping was residual from the last visit. When the power steering gear box was leaking it made quite a mess and dripped fluid all inside the frame.
