2001- Tailgate Rattle/thump
I've been chasing a thumping or popping sound in the rear of my Overland for some time now. For a while I thought it was coming from the rear suspension, but now I'm 90% it's somewhere in the rear tailgate assembly.
Today I removed the rubber bump stops that are screwed in around the opening just inside the taillight and it seemed to get better. The strange thing is, the same bump stops were not installed when I bought the vehicle (I found them rolling around in the spare compartment).
Has anyone had any similar tailgate issues? I have had it to the dealer several times and (of course) they can't replicate the sound.
