Pedestal Leak?

My truck ('02) is leaking oil onto the rear of the valley and leaving spots ranging from 3-5 inches on the ground.

It's obviously not coming from the HPOP, so would that indicate the pedestal o-rings?
Are there any other places I should look?

I do have dye in the oil and but haven't had time to do anything more than a quick look with the black light.
Here are the only pictures I could manage to get with all the tubes in place:

This is looking down from the passenger side, front of the truck towards the right, back towards the left. You can clearly see the pedestal and the faint glow of the oil in the bottom left (the back of the valley):


Looking up from the ground under the passenger side, you can see the faint glow from where the oil has been running down the passenger side of the block:


So what do y'all think?

Recently mine was leaking badly from the EBPV rod and a little bit from the o-rings.

Just pull it apart and take a look when you have a few minutes. Takes about half an hour to get it all apart.

Cool, good excuse to go ahead and gut the thing regardless.

Anything else I should address, turbo wise, while I'm there?
