Is it leaking from the filter cap or the separator drain valve?

You changed the fuel filter, but what was leaking? The o-ring on the filter cap or the o-rings on the drain valve on the back side of the filter housing? My bet is its the rings on the drain valve. Very common.

There is a thread on here that had the sizes of the valve o-rings I believe they are viton. From what I have read and expirienced ULSD is the culprit cuz it eats the orings.

I'll bet you a case of beer its leaking from the drain valve. There is a little petcok on the back of the filter housing, held on with 4 screws. Remove it and on the inside of the valve you will see 2 small o-rings, these are your problem and need to be replaced. The reason you have fuel on the underside of your truck and not in the valley is because the line attached to the drain goes down the front passenger side of the motor and dumps to the ground there.
