Near oil pan is a lot of real estate. The oil cooler and dip stick both are near the oil pan.

Check the passenger side of the oil pan where the dipstick enters the pan. Behind the starter. Mine was leaking bad there!

Is it up at the top of the bell housing? Or just at the bottom?
There is a weep hole at the back of the motor valley to allow anything in there to drain out down to where you're looking. My suggestion would be get some simple green, wash out the valley with the truck's front end up so it all runs back, and run a LOT of water on the rinse cycle to get it all outta there, then let it fully dry, then check for leaks after some more driving.

Mine is doing that. Crawl under with a light and look up the sides of the block. My oil is coming down the passenger side. I think the valve cover gasket is leaking. Haven't had a chance to check it closer.

Mine had issues with the actuator for the EBPV on the pedistal. Didn't really put much if any oil in the valley, but leaked down and around to where the trans and engine meet. Only way to know for sure is to give it a GOOD bath and run/drive it a bit and crawl all over with a flashlight or other bright light source.
