oil leaking from.......?

i had the truck up on the lift today checking out the brakes and saw this!!!!!!!!





the thing has never leaked a drop of oil before. its not getting on the ground but its all over everything under the truck. trans and transfer case. oils still full.
looks like its coming from those little frost like plugs in the head

im still under warranty so i want to get it fixed. unless its no big deal what do you guys think?

you need to look in the valley first, anything leaking up there needs to be fixed first. if that's dry suspect rear main or even a bedplate. i think i read somewhere that newer 6.0s have a different rear main than the 03s

Did you check the ICP sensor? Those are notorious for leaking.

Mine looks exactly like that... I had alot of oil in the valley and on my hood from leaking filter cap I suspect but I fixed all that I need to wash it off and see if it comes back. I was told rear main seal when under warranty but they said they couldn't fix it till it lost a significant amount
