You could pressure check your system and look for leaks to start with.

i would look at the water pump first, if its leaking in the middle of the truck. there is a weep hole on the water pump bearing that will leak if the pump is going out.

I agree with the water pump if you have never replaced it yet. Second would be the sheet metal thermostat housing, on the front of the block. Those suck to get sealed and commonly leak.

Good luck!

water pumps goin out around 150k(mine went at 162k) ha. also check your bottle closely mine has a tiny crack that causes it to leak. im thinking of trying to glue it but its so slow it will take a year for me to have to add a reasonable amount in haha.
