Power steering and brake reservoirs are both full, there is no burning or smell (yet), no splatter in the engine bay, and the truck is driving normally. Thanks for the idea though...I'm hoping we can narrow down the problem before I take it in for repair.

its really hard to tell from the pic but if the brake fluid and power steering fluid are both full i would suspect the axle seal on that side is leaking.

Possibly could be a busted shock on the drivers side. Just a guess though.

TO me it appears to be the inner CV joint , but then again any fluid will spread , check the inner cv joint on the drivers side fro cracks or breaks in the boot
