6.0 oil leak

Just bought a 2006 single cab, long bed, 4x4, auto, virgin, 1 owner, nice clean truck with 170,000, everything seems to be fine theres just a oil leak coming from the drivers side mid way up on the motor, leaves about and inch or so spot over nite, high miles and used, i understand that but this is the only thing i have found on the truck so I'd like to get it fixed. Thanks in advance.

oh yeah, also planning muffler/cat delete, intake, egr delete, prolly not gunna tune it, since it'll be a work truck, does this sound about right?

So, would a bedplate leak be more apt to drip on one side over the other? The OP has a leak on the driver's side. If it was on the passenger side, would it be something else or a bedplate leak from a different area?

Bedplate surrounds the oil pan area, so it could leak anywhere around just above the pan.

And, if you don't already have some, get a good set of gauges, before Anything else. I personally prefer the Edge Insight CTS, nice sized screen to be able to see everything at once. You need to know what's going on in your engine, that will tell you what you need to do first. I would suggest first thing, to get a known starting point for you as the new owner & it's going to be a work truck, is to change the oil, and all filters. Only use OEM filters, especially oil, as aftermarket ones can cause issues. There are threads around here for new 6.0 owners, be sure to read up on them before you do anything to your truck, as you don't want to have to do something twice, especially if it has to do with anything in the engine. Read, read, read. It will be well worth your time. believe me. It has been for me.
