I would start with the Valve cover gaskets first, unless you have already done them.

A little more info needed and possibly some more testing. First off, is it leaking badly under the vehicle? If so, something has failed like a gasket or sender. Otherwise, the oil is being consumed by the engine. Possible causes for consumption is valve guides, rings, or the PCV system.

Oil leaks at the valve cover gaskets and cam plugs at the rear of the cylinder heads are common.
Common areas for engine oil leaks include the camshaft plug, camshaft seal (sprocket end), valve cover gaskets, cylinder head gasket and distributor.
