Newb from the great WVU

New jeep owner just got a great deal on a 1997 TJ which had only one owner. Got a 3" lift new cooper discoverer STT 32" tires and 4.10 gears. Love it so far. Had to make a couple minor repairs seems to be a new one after every off road trip, but just minor one. The head light switch including one off them and new battery terminals. Just seems everything gets rubbed loose after a trip. But now i am having a new problem as of my last off road. When I am on the move and in motion in my 97' TJ there's a loud rattling noise that seems to be right under the middle of the rig and it sounds like 2 glass jars rattling off of each other. But the sound decreases as I come to a complete stop then it stops until I move again. Seems to do it the worst in 3rd gear. But when the top is off and door it is so loud and everyone can hear it as you pass by. Anyone have any ideas??

But I love it. Dont know how I went so long without owning a jeep!

Where all do you go in garrett county? I go up there every weekend during winter to snowboard and planning on going to college there for 2 years. That would be awesome if I found some wheeling spots up there.
