Condensation out of exhaust? That much normal?

I know exhaust condensation is normal, but my GC seems to have a lot (fist size puddle). When I start it up, there will be a small puddle under each muffler; within a minute, coming from the drain holes on the mufflers.

This is my first Jeep. Is it normal to have that much condensation exiting the exhaust on start up?

Yes normal for whatever reason. When its cold you will also notice how much more the exhaust steams

Same here. Done it for years, no issues, seems normal.

Great. Thanks fellas. Like I said, this is my first jeep and I'm still getting to know the "ins and outs".

We were in -15 F and it looked like a con-trail behind the car at freeway speeds.
