Rattle

Hey guys. The exhaust on me 97 tj se is rattling on my transfer case skid I think. It only does it when it gets warmed up and only at idle if I rev it a little it doesn't do it anymore. I had a small exhaust leak where the manifold connects so I tightened the bolts not I have this problem. If it matters I have 35s with a 4 inch lift and a 1 inch transfer case drop kit. Any help is greatly appreciated
Thanks

Did you try pulling the skid plate and checking the trans mount or seeing if the skid plate is dented

Maybe the donut off the exhaust manifold loosened up. If thats the case it could allow the exhaust to move around or allow it to rest on that skid plate, or anywhere else. Just a thought

It's not the skid plate. And could I replace the donut or get a whole new exhaust?

Why don't you get under there and take a look? Check your mounts (engine, trans, exhaust). If they're fine, bend/ adjust the exhaust pipe and/ or hangers until it clears..Why are people afraid to get under their Jeep and figure out what's going on?

X2^. Since he mentioned, ( finally ) that it is aftermarket exhaust, ( no cat ) then it is most likely an easy fix. Bend a hanger, or bend a pipe..

Might be the heat shield, wedge some fiberglass cloth, or something heatproof on top.

I would try placing a couple of muffler clamps on the pipe, near where it is hitting, and hook up some turnbuckles and fasten them up... The turnbuckles can be used to create tension on the pipe.. It may take a few times, (R&D), but you will be able to alleviate the rattle.. That's just my backyard solution.. . Good luck !!
