Rattle in Rear Passenger Area


I have a 2011 2 dr Sahara with hardtop. Jeep now has 18,000 miles. Has developed terrible rattling from rear passenger side area. On smoot roads no issue. On roads with small imperfections develops rattling sound that continues until back on smooth road. Does not appear to be rear shocks as I can rock the Jeep by hand and not hear any sound--seems normal shock action.
Jeep seems to function normally except for the rattling.

Appreciate any ideas or similar experience others may have had.

Check that your jack is snugged up. If it's loose it can rattle.
