Looks like its time to replace the heater core when they leak it leaks all over the pass floor dash has to be un bolted and moved to the side its a big job but not that bad if your mechanically inclined stop driving the truck if it leaks bad you will run out of coolant and overheat.

I hate to say it, but there is a good chance that it is indeed the HVAC Heater core
the inlet & outlet tubes can be moved around

Do a youtube search on how to replace it without completely removing the dash.

Might want to take this time to flush your engine coolant system, clean everything up, replace with fresh Coolant.
