    Took the Jeep on some mild trails to go camping last weekend. Talking washboards at worst.

    Now, there is an incessant squeak coming from the driver’s door window that happens on anything but freshly paved asphalt.

    Any ideas on what’s causing that? It didn’t happen before going on the dirt roads.

    I have a similar issue as well, when going over bumpy or mild bumps on the road the driver side door has this small vibration rattle can’t pin point where it’s coming from

    Does yours go away with the window down? Mine does. It’s bizarre and I’m hoping it’s simple and I can avoid a dealer visit, since mine sucks and constantly tries to gaslight me.

    I can’t recall but I will try later on my way home. I’m at the dealership getting the V41 recall done

    No one else has this problem?

    I’m almost to the point of selling this thing with all the squeaks and rattles. I can’t believe I spent $50,000 on something with such poor fit and finish.

    You guys do realize you bought a vehicle designed for the window to fold down, top come off and doors remove. The thing can't possible squeak and noise free.

    With that said, I do have the squeak you speak of. It will go away with window slightly down so I assume its the WINDOW thats not tightened that well on the window holder and any bump causes it to wiggle and squeak. As a test try putting a small amount of grease not he top 1/2" of the window and see if it helps.

    Instead of doing all that my solution was just to do this :) https://www.myjlproject.com/blog/jl-wrangler-audio-upgrade/. Now I dont hear shit in my jeep LOL

    As an update to anyone else with this issue, it wasn’t the window at all. The noise comes from the weatherstrip rubbing on the freedom panel. I put some sil-glyde on it and it went away. Wondering if there’s a more permanent solution.

    I've got this same issue with the soft top JLUR. Which weather stripping did you apply it to? The one on the door or on the door frame?

    (I'm not near my Jeep so can't check...)

    I put it on the door. That’s actually the only spot with weatherstripping

    It cracks me up how somehow people think a $50K vehicle is some sort of a premium thing. These days, $50K is barely out of economy car territory. I just sold my 3 year old 911 that stickered for $145K (sold it for $111K). It had just as many frustrating quality issues.

    Huh, well I guess if you’re in 911 territory that’s an appropriate take.
