Where am i getting this oil leak

I have a 2003 f250 7.3L with 135k miles. Pretty much since it started getting cold out the last month or so the truck started leaking oil. I really cant find where it is leaking from. It seems like everything on the driver side of the motor and inner fender is coated with oil, and it is blowing back under the truck. When sitting i can tell the engine cradle is wet and dripping onto the front axle. Any ideas where the leak is coming from? And how to fix it?

The dealer replaced the HPOP a little over a year ago. Although there is oil in the valley i cant tell if its fresh or still there from the previous change. Probley only drove the truck 10k miles since it was done. But i am not getting any oil dripping down the back of the motor like what happened when i had to replace the hpop o rings before. Also i know it isnt the oil filter.

Any tips or help would be appreciated thanks

Clean the motor and try to see where it's coming from.
