95 Oil Leak

I found the dreaded oil spot on my driveway this morning under my truck. It's toward the front of the engine and is actually dripping from the crossmember that goes under the front of the oil pan...where the fuel drain tube hits. I cleaned up the entire area (there was like 0.5" of grit on the front of the oil pan, where the "U" shaped seal is) so I'll check more. There are some lines to the drivers side of the oil pan and up a little that were all wet...anyone know what those lines are?

Also looked in from the drivers side wheel well and the very inside of that is wet with oil. Any idea where it could be leaking from toward the front of the drivers side? Valley is dry as is rear of motor so it's not from those directions.

Thanks!

Upon further inspection it's coming from up high...it looks like its wet at the valve cover gasket on that side. Is that a common leak point? I don't understand how it looks like its wet at the rear but is leaking to the front of the motor.

After lots of research I'm 99% sure its my oil cooler. Going to tackle it starting next weekend. I need an oil change and coolant flush anyway so I'm going to do it all at once.
