Loud pop when turning off angle

I swear I searched!

I see a lot of threads with noises when ppl turn, but mine seems to be different from the ones that came up in search.

Its a real loud pop, very metal sounding and most definitely sounds like its coming from inside the cab. The bolts appear to be all tight on the roll bar, but its the only thing I can think of that can make a noise that violent for lack of a better term. It has a hard top on it, but as loud as the noise is, if the top were making that much noise I would think the windows would crack.

Also, while im posting here, I took out the original roll bar padding, it was the wrong color for the new scheme with the seats and the dash im painting...Do the aftermarket pad kits go around the bars without taking them apart? I had to cut off some of the padding as it was slipped over the bars on assembly.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have a hard top too, and I get a few pops and creaks when turning as well. Nothing as violent as yours by the sound of it though....I'd check the bolts on the topper an dmake sure they're all snug.

You shouldn't have had to cut off your rollbar pad,

Do you have weather stripping between hard top and body?

Thats what I would have thought too...but the windshield ones had no velcro or anything, they were slid over the tube somehow. I just ordered a new kit this evening so I guess I'll take the bar off the windshield if that's how they have to slip on there?

Thanks!

I think now that I seen this between the padding kit and a few other things I need to get done, I'll unbolt the hard top and take it off and see whats going on under there. It seems way to loud to me to be that top, but it's worth a shot. I mean...this is REALLY loud and seems to be coming from the roll bar, but I guess that could be just the noise traveling through the bar?

Thanks again for all the help. I'll most likely take the top off tomorrow night when I can get some help lifting it and let you know what I find.

There is a big bolt that goes in
through the back of roll bar into the
across the window bar.
I removed my whole over window bar
so I dont remember if both have to be
removed

The new kit showed up and it seems I can install this one without removing any bars, which is cool!

I got it set in place out there now letting it acclimate a bit cuz it was on the cold front porch. Looking at it though, Im hoping it becomes obvious how it goes on there. I see the side window bars are their own pieces, the rest is a giant X and kind of a mess of long and short zippers. just one arrow on there pointing toward the front would be awesome so I don't have to go into this guessing!

I did sneak a peak under the hard top and it looks like there is no weatherstrip under there. So I'll take the top off and do that. Now that some time has gone by I can tell it's defiantly coming from that hard top...Much to my surprise! a noise that loud I would have thought would have snapped glass by now!

Thanks for the input everyone!

Eddie, does it have a body lift? If you don't find any problem with the rollbar or top check your body mounts.

Im not really sure if it has a lift, I dont really know what im looking at yet (im ashamed to say)
I did look at the body mounts though and they have to go, most of em are half squished out or more and all dry rotted.

I didn't comment on that cuz I was going to do my homework....but since you asked, is a body lift done in these points only or is it more to it than that?

The Jeep could use an inch or two raise to clear the tires, they do ok most the time, backing up they rub when turning though.

Thanks!
