I have an AFE Power axle back scorpion exhaust and as I’ve been trying to keep my quarantined self busy I heard a pressurized gurgling noise. I got under the jeep and at both connection points there is a small amount of black liquid bubbling out of the connection points. I’ve never heard this sound or thrown a code. Could this be due to the Jeep not running long enough to purge the water from the system or should I be concerned about leaks.

I wouldn’t worry about it, it’s condensation mixed with exhaust soot...completely normal.

even if it’s Not leaking out of the tailpipe but out of the connections where the clamps are?

My opinion is that’s it’s better to get the moisture out, some factory mufflers even have a drain hole to let the condensation out. Now if you have a noticeable exhaust leak then try to correct it. Either way the system should be galvanized or stainless so it won’t rust even if you do patch it up.

its moisture mixed with the soot of exhaust. if you dont want it to leak then weld it! clamps arent a 100% seal on exhaust and never will be.
