    Default Leaking brake fluid onto frame

    Walked outside today and saw that there was a sizeable oil spot under my truck. But the spot is just infront of the tire. The brake line goes from the drivers side then to the passenger side am I right? because the leak is on the other side of the frame. How big of a deal is this going to end up being?

    Get under the truck, and make 100% sure of whats leaking, then we can help you. This can be a big deal, or an easy fix, we just need a little more info.

    It is leaking on the inside, between the tank and the frame, right where the wheel well starts. There are some hoses in there, but i cant see where exactly its leaking.

    sounds like you are going to have to replace some hard brake line
