2003 wrangler rattling sound
When I turn the front wheels hard left or hard right and accelerate(as if pulling out of a parking space), there is a loud rattling or "ratchety" sound that comes from the front of the vehicle. I can't tell if it's coming from the engine compartment, or the front end. If anybody else has had this problem, please respond. Thanks.

Is your Jeep all stock?
I have 32x11.5 tires w/ 2.25"BB, and get what I guess could be called a rattle or ratcheting sound from the tires rubbing at full turn.

yes, it has the stock size tires and stock wheels. I'm starting to wonder if it could be a motor mount issue.

I have this same problem. It goes to dealership on thursday to get fixed ( under warranty). They are fairly positive its the front u joint, I can feel it at my driver side floor clunking. Check under my thread clunk under floor for follow up.
