Leaking fuel

Hi guys, Im new on here, I've been a dodge guy all my life and got sick of having a pile of f#$! truck, so I got an 02 stroker. The other day I noticed I little puddle on my driveway and at first I thought it was oil but its not. Im 95% sure its diesel, its to thin to be oil. I took a quick look today and it seems like its coming from the filter housing, filling the valley and dripping down the back of the block. I'm going to take a closer look tomorrow at our shop when I have a light. My question is seems how im not super familiar with these trucks, is there some common spots or things I should look at for a fuel leak around the filter housing? Thanks

I would order a drain valve and a fuel filter O-ring reseal kit as well as a fuel line sleeve kit. Replace the drain valve and 2 o-rings and replace o-ring on FPR and o-rings on fuel heater connector. Replace all fuel line sleeves and enjoy. I would remove fuel filter housing completely so that you can clean the bottom of the housing which normally has half of an inch of buildup in it.
