    Gonna need a little more info. Coolant? Oil? Trans fluid? Power steering fluid? Brake fluid? Is it a gasser or a Dmax?

    Probably power steering, if it's not a brake. The power steering pump, most of the lines, and cooler are all there, just had to replace the cooler on my 04 last fall.

    Not out by the tire.

    Shouldn't be tough to figure out what's leaking

    Probably the caliper leaking brake fluid. My Tahoe and Silverado did this. Easiest way to find out if this is it is to see if the inside of the tire is wet after being parked for a while. Good luck!
