Question for local friends
 
Picked up my 2013 JKUR from 4WP after getting my 3.5 Rubicon Express Super Flex installed and when hitting any bump or uneven surface there is a loud slapping/knocking near firewall/driver feet area... ??? It's loud. No cluse what it is


Any ideas?

I would crawl under the Jeep and check all the control arm mounting points for tightness to start. If anything loose, call 4WP and tell them what you found. If this is the case, you may need a tow truck to transport the Jeep from your home to the service shop. Don't really think it is safe to drive with loose suspension coponents. Good luck.

Just a follow up .. Since it finalyl got fixed yesterday.. 4WP took it in .. told me it actually was the body mount loose from the factory .. they tightend it .. drove it home and it's solid. So happy now this is fixed because the noise was terrible.

I wonder if it really was a body mount issue!.. Coming from 4wp I would still be suspicious about it, but it's good to hear the problem is gone now.

What year Yota did you have before the JKUR??

we do lifts here at performance plus every day, we have ran into loose body mounts. never had any one say it was as bad as how you said you heard it. i would look at all mounts and parts thay put in. they should have marks for the tools they used. i'm just saying. good luck.

I had a 1987 4Runner 22RE Auto on 35's with an All Pro SAS kit locked front and rear.

also had a 1999 4Runner with Camburg C/O's on 33's

I have never used them before in the past but for my crazy work schedule they were convient to my home and work to work out dropping off and picking up. They treated my right but only time will tell about the finished product.

However i am looking for from and rear bumpers along with sliders so if you have a reccomendation on who to use for that i am all ears

Live axle Runners are sweet crawlers...

i loved it .. but had to store it (live in a association) .. between two cars and storage i could buy a factory straight axle and it came with a pretty cool Jeep =)
