From the first five seconds I got into my new JLUR there was this annoying ticking rattling sound it’s driving me insane if I reach across to the passenger side and push on it it goes away I still need to get a person in the passenger seat to narrow it down. It almost reminds me of when I originally got my first JLUR in 2018 there was a rattling sound between the sound bar and the frame which other people had and we wedged foam in between to stop it. But this one it’s killing me LOL

I knew somebody would say that. But I listen to Howard Stern. I’ll fix it. It was only $61,000

Let’s remember it’s a $33k truck with $28k worth of options. Lots of cheap/hard/noisy plastic that’s shared across all of them.

Tough crowd. In all honesty though, if you are driving in silence and trying to hear other noises you will. They used to drive me nuts until I learned how to tune them out.
And I do agree with you, there shouldnt be any annoying rattles or squeaks.

To me a Wrangler is like an old house, it always seems to need attention in a different area all the time.

My sons 2012 JK has almost 80k on it and has never had an issue other than normal upkeep but it’s got rattles and squeaks, maybe that a requirement for a Wrangler

Try taking out the freedom panels and treating all the seals with 303, I do this everytime I take mine out and before putting them back in I take a damp cloth and wipe the seal real quick then use 303 on them, it literally takes less them 10 mins to do.

If that does not work take back to the dealer and have them address, I’m sure it’s an easy fix
