I have a lifted 04 wrangler , 3" body and 4" suspension on 35" tires. Whenever my jeep is idling there is a noise that comes from the transmission area, and also whenever the clutch is ppressed it kinda gets a little louder. Spoke with the local off road shop and he says that jeeps just have loud transmissions when they are lifted and nothing sounds unordinary. Also, mechanic said it checked out and is in great shape for an 04 with 40k miles. I was just wondering If anyone else has thos issue, and if when they shift into 1 or 2 gear it kinda clunks/grinding noise, like it's missing the gear or maybe my shifter needs to be extended??
Also, whenever i drive the jeep and the engine/transmission warms up there is an EXCESSIVE amount of hot air being blown into the cabin near the driver and passenger feet, is there a way to stop this air from coming in??
Thanks guys n gals
