So when I coast to about 5-7 mph right about when you start feeling the tread from the tires vibrating I am hearing a vibrating or rattling sound in the front! Sounds like metal and it is driving me crazy!!!! I went under the JK and took the front skid plate off thinking that would help but it didn't...

I have. 2010 JKU with 24xxx miles on it, a 3.5" rubicon express lift and 37" mtr's with Kevlar..... Pleeeeeeease help!!!!!


Also so that I don't start another thread I am getting a vibration at highway speeds at about 65-70... Like an unbalanced tire or something but they all are balanced.... Please help!


Thank in advance!

Check your heat shields... My muffler one was sitting on the muffler

Also supposedly there's shields around the erg tubes that rattle under load

I meant egr... Stupid auto correct...

For the heat shields yes, they're about the thickness of an aluminum roaster pan... They bend easily, but mine had pulled some of the bolts through so I just removed it

Should I check front and rear? It sounds like it's coming from the front... Bad....

You should be able to find the heat shields. Also check to make sure that the exhaust isn't touching or to close to anything. Check you exhaust hangers while your underneath too.

I'm thinking that 2x was talking about EGR tubes = exhaust gas recirculation tubes. Geez, I thought those were phased out of the emission equipment a long time ago, tells you what I know... But, if they're there you will find them on there way out of the exhaust and then back in further upstream.

My passenger side fender skin has a knack for rattling at that speed, annoying as hell.

I honestly don't know. In my rattle thread people mentioned them having an unsecured shield... I have yet to get around to fixing that noise.

Hmm, I need to check some of these things out, mine is brand new and stock and has a little nails on a chalkboard type rattling sound when it hits just the right (wrong?) RPM, regardless of road speed. I would have the dealer look at it but, from what I have been reading about dealer relations, it would seem that their response would merely be- "it's a Jeep, it's gonna rattle". :shaking:

After driving around tonight with my fiancee (radio low or off since she wanted to talk), I think I am going to take my JK to the dealership tomorrow. With the radio at my regular volume (loud), I can barely hear it but, with the radio off, it is torturous!!!! :pissed:

Only 500 miles on the Jeep, there should not be a sound so noticeable that it gives me a headache!!! (It's actually not very loud, it's just that I hear it and focus on it and it's all I can think about whilst I am driving) :pissed:

I just wish I felt that I could trust the dealership! When I had my DMAX, I had a GM dealership I knew I could trust but, I really don't trust the service department of my Jeep dealership!
