Clunk felt under driver's seat when hitting bumps.

I've looked all under the jeep around the transfer case and I cant seem to find out what is clunking around when I go over bumps. Happens everytime, yet I don't see anywhere that it looks like anything is hitting where I hear the noise. Any ideas?

I would check your sway bar links, your trackbars, and the transmission mount first. It is not uncommon for the transmission mount to wear out on a jeep that spends any time offroad. It took me a long time to figure out what theat annoying rattle was...turns out it was the tranny mount.

stupid suggestion but check your seat. I took the front seat out once and it has forever clunked since putting it back in. I cannot get the bolts to go in right, so the seat just clunks a lot as I bounce in the jeep. I'll have to fix it one of these days, most annoying thing ever!

I reread my post and I forgot to mention that under your feet and around the seat is where it's felt. I haven't checked the seat yet, thanks techflork. I'll double check everything as we have recently put on a lift, shocks, and new bumpstops. Thanks.

Keep anything under your seat or next to it? Every once in a while I'll forget I haven't mounted my Maglite and it will clunk next to the seat or door jam. Sounds like something hitting underneath every time.
