just checked the hose and it appeared to be good but what i did find is on the dip stick the part that slides down over the dipstick tube is broken off and basically the handle is sitting right on top of the tube. could oil make its way all the way up the tube and spray out the top? in the pic you can see the part thats broken off its slid down the tube a little way

Run it and check the oil cap or the oil filter houing .. seen both of them crack before ... Best thing to do is spray it off and drive it and see where it comes from

I agree with the bad exhaust leak and I also think it may be the oil filter cap/housing leaking. Follow the oil towards the front of the vehicle and to the highest point.

Easiest way to find an oik leak like that is to soak the engine in degreaser for about 15 minutes, rinse with a hose. Let the truck idle until you find where its leaking from. I did one the other day. I started the truck and went a did something else for about 20 mins. After returning i found the leak immediately. The glow plug connector had come unseated.

Also, regarding your exhaust leak. If jts leaking on the pass side, inner fenderwell removal makes life a lot easier to service that side of the engine.
