2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Smoke issues

Hey all I have my jeep on a jack on the front left axel. I started the jeep today and there was crazy amount of white smoke coming out of the exhaust pipe and also I noticed that it seemed to be "leaking" white smoke from where the headers are bolted to the start of the exhaust piping. My question is what is going on?

Welcome to the garage.
Any sweet smell to the smoke? How does the coolant level look like? Could be that it is "burning " coolant. Was any maintenance done lately?

Actually it's a foul smell like bad emissions. The coolant is fine and no no maintenance. It looks like the header and exhaust pipe weren't bolted together all the way but when it cooked I checked with my finger and it felt like there wasn't a gap. Still unsure though.
