noise coming from dashboard or windshield

I just bought my 2011 jeep wrangler and it now only has about 700 miles. I drive on the nyc bumpy pothole roads but should be able to take it. There is some vibrating noise coming from the dashboard/windshield/hood area.
I hear the noise while driving 5 to 40mph. I can not figure out where its coming from. Does anybody else have the same type of noise. Sounds like some thing medal and plastic is vibrating and something is loose.

Is it an irritating small sound? Or a loud thump sound. I found a small sound coming from the dash where it meets the plastic pillar running up the the windshield on the drivers side. If you put your hand on the dash right where it meets the windshield piece it stops.

You need to removed the sold sign from the windshield.

Check the bolts that hold the sport bars to the windshield. Adjust them either way and see if that helps.

Went for a little drive about Sunday....and kept hearing a little noise not present before.....couldn't identify it.....something small rattling off & on.... Wasn't any of the places I checked.....until passenger moved her feet and we found couple of metal items on the floor.....voila, no more noise!!!

I've had stuff in the door side panels make noise before. Once it was stuff in a box behind the driver seat.

Good luck in finding yours.
