2 bad oil leaks

Ok guys so I have two pretty bad oil leaks. The one is from the front of the engine which in normally has a small leak from the front, but tonight when I started it to warm it up there was a pretty bad leak from the front and it seemed to be pouring out of the front.

Heres the front one: 2 bad oil leaks-2013-01-22-21.02.01.jpg

Then last night I parked it last I parked it and was gone for an hour and had a bad leak coming from the rear driver side of the engine.

Heres the second leak: 2 bad oil leaks-2013-01-22-21.02.12.jpg

Any help to figure out what they might be would be awesome. Thanks!

Pics are nearly useless. Front leak - make sure it's oil, and not power steering fluid (is that driver's side?) or tranny fluid (if automatic). Rear - oil filter gasket, oil cooler. Looking at the ground won't tell you nearly as much as looking up under the truck.

I'll check if the front its power steering, because the does phase in and out. I used those pics just to show how much was leaking within the short period of time it took. I havent been able to get under the truck yet. I'll get under pics on thursday since thats the soonest I'll be able to get under there.

Re: 2 bad oil leaks

Ok its definatly not power steering fluid its definatly oil. As soon as I started it up to go to work, I had a pretty big puddle going in about a minute in a half. This is how big it was after start up: 2 bad oil leaks-uploadfromtaptalk1358950106546.jpg (and yes I know puddle pictures aren't anywhere as useful as under the truck pics, but having a puddle like that come out of the front that quick, I figure someones got to have an idea)
As I drove to work, which is about two miles from my house, I wasn't leaving any trail while driving or any puddles at stop lights, or stop signs. As it sits in the lot now it is leaking slowly. The leak in the rear driver side is also going but is pretty slow but I think that one is probably the oil cooler gasket. Again any help is greatly appreciated!

They both might be the oil cooler, opposite ends of it.
