Anyone have this sound?

My new 15 Altitude. When going over bumps, pot holes or a sewer cap, ( Ny roads Suck) the pass rear tire, under there somewhere sounds like a hollow jiggling noise. I thought maybe it was the spare tire so I took out the foam and jack and the 2 plastic tubs and tightened down the spare but it's still there. Now at highway speeds i don't hear anything only low speed bumpy roads. It is kinda hollow back there but my current 14 Limited and both my previous 14 SRT & 15 SRT never did it and it only sounds on the right rear?

I think ownership of a Summit or Overland would be conclusive. I think you ought to consider owning one to avoid these noises.

Always one in the crowd, why waste your time with that answer. Thinking maybe you might get a laugh.

Check the rear cargo cover or maybe lean the back seats back. There was a thread about one of the rear head rests making a noise going over bumps.... Always fun tracking a noise down in a new car!?!

Yes, I have the same noise (And under the exact same circumstances)… 14 Limited 4x4... It is getting to the point where I feel I should have it looked at (thought I could live with it but probably not a good idea).

Re: Anyone have this sound?

For what it is worth, I had a rattling noise I swear was coming from the moonroof, turns out it was something in that little holder by the flashlight in the back.

My point being, take everything out of the back area and run it a day and see if you still hear it. Good luck.

Re: Anyone have this sound?

I am experiencing the same thing in my 2014 Laredo E (with ORA1 and Tow Package). I first noticed it a couple of months ago. It did not do it the first year I had the Jeep. I only notice it at low speed. It almost sounds like an empty two liter plastic bottle is bouncing around near the rear wheel wells in the back. And I can almost feel a slight jiggle in the steering wheel when it happens.

I was thinking it was the OEM Forteras starting to age, but maybe not...

I hear it too and I thought it was because I was lowered. But I have the same exact sound at the same low speed conditions only

Was the sound present before lowering? If not, it sure as heck sounds like a crappy shock to me.

Agreed may be the rear shock or shocks. I have a parts warranty on them im going to ask the shop to take a look at them when it's up on the lift. I don't remember the sound before I lowered it. But it also didn't do it right after I lowered it maybe a month after. Going to ask them to check the shocks and make sure everything is tight later this week.

Re: Anyone have this sound?

Get Chrysler to look at it for you, it could be as simple as a loose sway bar bushing. Tell them about the noise and ask them to check all the rear suspension bolts with a torque wrench to make sure they are set correctly.
