Water Leaking at #4 and #6 Cylinders onto top of exhaust manifold
 
My brother just bought this vehicle (1999 1500 Laramie SLT, 5.9L) and it had a "small radiator leak". So this past weekend we proceeded to replace the radiator and some other items. After getting the vehicle all back together and starting it up, we noticed white smoke coming out of the exhaust pipe. Also noticed water dripping onto the top of the exhaust manifold at the #4 & #6 exhaust ports. It looked like the water was coming from the bottom of the valve cover. But there was NO water in the engine. So I'm guessing that it might a bad intake manifold gasket. But I'm not sure. I don't know if water runs through the cylinder head at this location or not. Any insight and suggestions are welcomed as I'm new at working on Dodges.
