2001 F250 7.3 leaking oil

Just walked outside and notice a puddle of oil under my truck. It is fresh and looks to be the first time. Oil is up high on engine and bottom of tranny. Hoping and praying its not rear main seal. Any ideas and maybe even a good mechanic in the columbus ga phenix city al area thanks guys

Its not your rear main seal. Watch these videos and you'll be a 7.3 leak expert:

I wonder if clouds ever look down on us and say, "Hey, look - that one is shaped like an idiot!"

I know tread is a few years old but I'm glad it's here & especially your post. Those video's just helped me on my leaking 02 7.3. I heard about the "OTHER" places that could be where the leak is but until I saw the vid's I was unsure of where the spots were. Thanks...
