Rattle when turning Jeep off

Ok, ive been researching the forum for a bit and reading about what my problem may be but I just wanted to get a final judgment before I jump in. When I turn my Jeep off there is a loud rattle for a second as it turns off. I've read people saying that it might be parts of the exhaust that are loose and rattling as the engine shakes a bit when shutting down. Then someone said that if you hold the clutch all the way down when you shut off the Jeep and it DOESN'T make the noise then its a worn out throwout bearing. So I went outside and tested that, sure enough, when I hold the clutch down while I turn off the Jeep there is no noise. so does this point to a worn out throwout bearing?

I don't think so. That would stop the gears in the transmission from moving as well which has an exhaust hanger mount attached to the transmission mount. It can be a lot of stuff. I'd lay under it while some one shuts it down and try to pin point it. Good luck brother.

I'm trying to find someone to lay under mine while I'm driving it to find out what my persistent annoying rattle is.

$10, ONLY if they diagnose it correctly.

Definitely not throw out bearing, likely it's just the gears in the transmission clattering. Seems to be pretty common with these manual transmissions, I know I get a clatter if I turn it off with the clutch engaged.

so you get clatter when you have the clutch pedal pushed in or when the clutch pedal is NOT pushed in?

I have a chatter when I shut off without the clutch in too. I just always push in the clutch when I turn my jeep off and then no more annoying sound. I heard from a few people different things such as throw out bearing but it seems to be a common sound with atleast the jeeps I've been around

Yeah, no rattle when clutch is pushed all the way down, what does that mean?

Sounds to me that the normal gear noise you hear when in neutral with the clutch out is more defined and easier to hear as the engine stops moving. I always park in gear so I always have my pedal pushed until it's off.

You got me curious so I went out and tried it. I can see why you would be worried. It's completely normal. Mine does it too and I'm positive there is nothing wrong with mine.

That's good news, I don't mind the noise as long as it doesn't mean something is broken, ya know? If its normal then I'm all good.

Aren't these sorts of things where "It's a Jeep thing" comes from?

Mine is the same, no rattle when the clutch is to the floor.
