They did start putting 'em back in standard (was an option).
You can look thru the grille and see it if so, on the driver's side and in front of the CAC.

If it's wet there, you're leaking PS fluid, not brake fluid.
While the PS reservoir may show full, it only takes a small amount of fluid to leak out, make a mess, and look like it's more fluid leaking than it is.
Merry Christmas Hook!

So I was working 7 days a week when you helped my find that it was the booster leaking. I have a new booster on hand but haven't had a chance to change it out. I never saw the booster actually drip again, until yesterday... There is a drip spot under my truck and it was bigger this morning. I need to drive to my dads shop to change it out. Think it is safe to drive since it is dripping without even being under pressure? I haven't driven the trucks in 5 days so there shouldn't be any pressure in the system.

You're fine.
Just make sure your PS pump reservoir doesn't run low and damage the PS pump.
