|SilverSport||I often get the gurgle when I let off the throttle and start coasting and the engine is doing the braking.|

Minr was gurgling also and I just couldn't figure out why.
I looked and looked and just couldn't find the cause

|pkmcd99||Normal. Sounds good, enjoy it. Stop idling as much. And run your rig down the highway more, it burns off the moisture that causes it. Absolutely harmless anyway.|

Throttle up before you put it in gear for a sec. You get a carbon and water splat, clearing the rig's throat before the trek.

All rigs do that. Some mufflers come with a weep hole to allow the start up moisture to drain. Exhaust gases are hot by nature and passing through a cold metal tunnel creates condensation. If it cannot escape, it will collect in the baffles and give you the gurlging sound.

Muffler gurgle sound?
Anyone else experience what I'm describing? After I start my jeep and drive it for about 20-30 feet I hear what sounds like a little gurgle coming out of the back of the jeep muffler side. Do the JKs or jeeps in general build up some kind of condensation after sitting for a while and then you hear it after starting up? It only does it maybe one time after first moving then stops.
