Popping noise after turning off '05 Limited

We recently purchased a 2005 GC Limited 5.7 with @70K miles for our soon to be driving son. This is our 3rd GC (96&03), all 4wd. The popping noise occurs after stopping the Jeep and turning it off. After a few seconds, you here a pop from under the vehicle. It seems to be coming from the dead center of the vehicle. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Popping noise after turning off '05 Limited

Probably the cats and exhaust cooling down. They get quite hot and as the metal expands and contracts with the heat cycle, you can get popping noises.


Could also be when taking your foot off the brake and loading either the parking brake and/or transmission parking prawl.

Without really hearing it, it is tough to say, but I wouldn't worry about it at this point.

The exhaust cooling makes a lot of sense. Thanks for the quick reply!
