Default water dripping from middle of exhaust pipe under bed?!?!?

2001 Ranger 3.0 V6 Flexfuel 2-wheel drive 112k

I left my truck idleing today in the drivway for about 5 min. I looked under the truck and noticed a very small amount of water dripping from the middle of the exhaust pipe, sort of between the rear seats and the middle of the bed (So basically just under the bed)... Any ideas? Is this normal? I also am a little low on coolant but cant find a leak anywhere!!! Truck does NOT overheat. Thank you!

I would guess its just condensation dripping from the weep hole in the muffler. Stock mufflers have a small hole in them to let built up condensation drain out.

Yup. It's just like how when you get a custom exhaust the water comes from the pipes instead. Nothing to worry about. Unless it's like a garden hose is stuck up in there.

Way too much done to list and it's also not even close to done
