Sparks out the exhaust

My neighbor told me today that when i came home last night i had sparks coming from my exhaust. Could this be true. I looked today and didnt see any. Truck runs great. Just changed the oil yesterday. Its 4in exhaust from the turbo back. No cat but has a muffler. Could he be seeing things?

Sounds kind of odd... maybe it's something once you run the rig for a while? Maybe something got in there and was hang out and burnt up... i mean never heard of sparks other than when the 6.4s were flame throwers

bump for ya

I will go with that. If you leave a tractor idle for a while in the field you will see sparks coming from the exhaust every time. Esp when you idle up after it sits for a while. ESP if it was starting to wet stack (my Farmall MD is good for that)
