Great point on the rodent(s). Look for the telltale sign of droppings on top of the filter. We’ve had multiple rodents get into any vehicle we park outside.
We had a chipmunk kick the bucket on top of the in cabin air filter- thankfully not in my jeep - in his little nest. Ugly:(
I have a 2 door with a hard top and haven’t noticed anything resembling the sound you described. If you went this route - and experienced the booming sound - maybe sound panels could help.
This is totally not your fault.
In the old days when you used a real key, you couldn’t turn off the car without removing it from the ignition. A push button is all too easy to forget to depress. See it’s FCA’s fault!!!!! 😀
I hate road salt with a passion!!!!
When we lived in Ohio it literally destroyed the frame on my 01 TJ and I used to go to the car wash on a regular basis - all to no avail.

Granted a lot of debate, but the general consensus is it can’t hurt. :)
