Hi everyone...I'm just checking in and would like to also ask a question about my automatic 08 JKU Rubicon. It makes this weird clunking, grinding and or vibrating noise that is really annoying. What exactly is it and how can it be fixed? I hope someone could help me. It's good to be here and be part of the WF community...here is a link

Check the transmission and muffler heat shields. After awhile they can make that type of vibration/rattle sound.

That high pitched vibration sound certainly sounds like a heat shield is loose. They have spot welds that sometimes break which allows them to vibrate and make an annoying sound. My jeep used to sound like that and my heat shields were loose on my exhaust pipe. I used a hose clamp to secure them back to the exhaust pipe and that stopped the sound. You will need to find out where the heat shield(s) has come loose and secure it.
