either move your shocks or your exhaust.

Because they are hitting each other.

I had the same problem and I put a small dimple it the exhaust pipe to clear the shock. My wasn't exactly pressed against the shock but it did tap when it idled just right. If yours isn't too bad you might give it a try.

i was planning on getting a gibson catback but i ended up with a monster because the regular gibson wouldn't fit a lifted vehicle. but they do make ones specifically for lifted jeeps.
