New2012JEEP Mine has this rattle too, can't quite figure out what it is. I have been able to hit an area in complete silence. It seems to happen after depressing the brake, and hitting the gas. It sounds rotational, but only does it immediately after jeep starts moving, then goes away. It does sound like heat shields though.

sparksel1 It does not do it all the time. More when engine is warm than cold. Could not reproduce it while sitting still in neutral or in drive.

ohioviper Does it do it all the time at low rpms while sitting still ? If so leave it running and try to pinpoint it.

sparksel1 Ok, sorry to be the bother. I installed two pieces of heat resistant rubber between the two metal pipes and that did not help what so ever. I have been underneath banging around on everything I can find and still no luck.

^^^ this was what I was talking about to clarify lol

Its called a jeep wrangler lol i think each one has its own specific noises it likes to make lol but on a serious note i think there are two tubes that come out of the firewall that sit rather closely to each other. Sometimes they are a little too close and rattle.
