you probably got it to tight and deformed the o ring in one place or another. im sure you already know but this might be the most risky operation on your truck you can do. if you drop the back nut part then the engine gets to come out and the oil pan off to get it out. my guess is it was over tightened and the oring is broke.

i had this issue. Replaced the o-ring and nut twice. First time i tightened the nut too tight and it leaked second time i just snugged it and it is still leaking like a sieve. But oh well.
