Turbo Pedistal, Turbo, Exhaust Back Pressure Valve, HPO fittings, HPOP, Could also be fuel from the drain valves... Clean up the valley really good and watch it for a few days.

I just park in the dirt now at home. I think that's all these do is leak oil.

i would lean towards the hpop lines going to the heads, it could be leaking there and as your driving the oil is running to the rear of the motor,

My 93 leaked oil. lifted the engine in my driveway. replaced the oil pan. done. my 85 doesn't leak one drop of ANY liquid. it was leaking PS fluid which was a seal which i fixed in my driveway until 5 in the morning. I do all my work and take pride in my truck. when you do this your truck lasts. I've been around a lot of powerstrokes and they're owned by people who take pride in them. None of theirs leak. One kid i go to school with likes to try to blow smoke and beat on his truck. guess what it leaks a lot of oil
