After a 10 mile trip today, I notice water coming out from the tail pipe, and other areas of the of the exhaust system.

Is this a head gasket problem?

Thank you.

It is normal. The truck's catalytic converter causes a chemical reaction that will convert harmful exhaust gases to harmless ones. When HC (hydrocarbons) and CO (carbon monoxide) gases are exposed to hot surfaces inside the converter, the HC and CO combine with oxygen to become carbon dioxide (CO2) and water (H2O).

In addition to this, condensation builds up inside the exhaust system and then is forced out the tail pipe. Again, normal.
