WJ muffler rattle

Hi, I'm new, I have a 04 WJ 4.7 that I'm absolutely in love with, but it has its problems. It has 96k, and I'm trying to find this rattle in or around the muffler, the rattle comes from right behind the engine and right before the 'cat' I'm not sure if it's the cat rattling or something else is loose, it's definitely not a heat shield, I've put washers on all of those. Has anyone delt with this before?

You'll have better luck getting an answer if you post to the correct forum. This is the WK2 forum.

Re: WJ muffler rattle

I would let it cool down and then hit the muffler with your fist to hear if its making any noise.
