I'd look at the back of the fuel filter and also look at the fuel filter while the truck is running.

Likely the Orings have gone bad or the last time you did a filter change you didn't tighten it enough, I've done that before... got fuel everywhere!

Diesel Leak

Hey guys, I cant find the location of the fuel filter. My guess is its under towards the firewall because the leak must be `coming from that area to be leaking down by the tranny???

The most common leak for fuel on these trucks, is the o-rings on the fuel filter housing.
