Default Coolant Leak :(

yesterday afternoon i noticed a coolant smell coming out of my air vents and today when i got off work there was a big puddle on the passenger side of my truck, i crawled under and couldnt see where it was coming from, i think its the heater core but not sure. passenger carpet is dry and i dont have any leaks in the cab that i can see. anyone know where to start looking? my truck is a 98 4.6 4x4 any help would be very much appreciated

Do a pressure test, you will find your leak in a hurry.

Exactly the same symptoms, it was for me too. With me was the Heater Core broken. Put your vent on COLD, Ride a bit, and then look if you have water under the car .
