Hissing from Underneath?

So recently, I noticed that something was leaking and hitting something hot and it made a sizzling sound after i parked. I never saw any fluids drip or any puddles. Then today i parked the jeep at work and i heard a hissing coming from most likely the same spot that almost sounded like one of the tires had a hole in it. I haven't had a chance to really get under there and diagnose what in the world is going on. But I wanted to drop a line to you guys to see if any of you had experienced this to help expedite whatever repairs i might need to do.

Thanks Gents!

A/C condensate dripping on hot exhaust parts. Nothing to worry about.

Most likely the a/c. Keep an eye on it and see if you see any puddles of water under it. The water comes from the condenser and drips on the cats. Nothing to worry about, and every KK does it. If you don't see water, or the puddle isn't water, then it's time to worry lol

mine used to do that long time ago...
on hot days like today (98*F), my A/C will take a little while to start blowing cold air... if i turn the AC on and i'm parked the AC will never start to blow cold air

Notice mine doing the same thing this summer. Was dripping under drivers seat and hitting exhaust pipe. Was concerned at first to cause never heard it before and never seen anything drip from that spot since I've owned the truck. I'm used to the condensation dripping under engine compartment. My puddle was clear and deff water. Like others have posted, if your puddle is water then most likely no worries. If its something else, get it in the shop fast.
