Steam from hood, not overheating

I need some input on my JK. I've notice lately while driving some steam coming from the hood. All fluids check fine, no visible leaks, not overheating. Once I raise the hood, it seems to come from the radiator. I've waited about a month, and checked all fluids again, all seems fine. Can't figure out what it could be. Any ideas????

If u hit a puddle or went through water it happens. It happens to me all of the time.

there are a couple threads about this, its in the design and water puddles up somewhere under the hood and steams off when it gets hot... I've seen a few posts about it in the past couple weeks.

here is one...

Just a JK phenomenon. Nothing to worry about. As mentioned, the rad gets wet, the water heats up and is converted to steam....

Well, since its running fine, I guess I'll leave it alone, and ignore it. Thanks y'all for the input.
