    Good morning all,
    I am the proud owner of my fourth Jeep, well 2nd open body. CJ7, two Liberty's and now a 2017 Wrangler Unlimited Sport. Looking forward to hitting the trails.

    One question, getting a metallic rattle when I accelerate, goes away at high speeds. checking pipes all seem to tight. Wheels and hubs next, any suggestions.

    Can you guess on the location of the rattle?
    Front, rear, undercarriage?

    I have a 2016 unlimited and I get a slight rattle when accelerating coming from my exhaust. Right after the muffler where it does its dance around the driveshaft I have small clanking from the hanger. Not sure if that helps.

    Anyway welcome back!

    Found the problem, the exhaust pipe was installed incorrectly, hitting the bolt on the left tension bar. It will on the lift after Santa comes to town. Hopeful after he leaves my body armor half doors! Thanks for the responses.
