14 Tire Carrier Rattle

This is my first jeep to make it passed a year with the stock tire on the stock carrier (1CJ7, 1 YJ, 2 TJ and 1 JK). In the last few weeks it has developed a loud rattle when I go over any kind of bump. I checked everything and it is all secured and tight. I'm trying to get a feel for if this is an issue I need to get fixed under warranty or a common issue with the JK? Worst case I step up to an aftermarket carrier, but would like to wait if poss.

Thanks for your input.

No one else had this issue on the factory tire carrier?

Is the top hinge on your tailgate making the noise?

Re: 14 Tire Carrier Rattle

I checked and it's not the hinge. If I place my hands at 3 and 9 and try and move the tire it is solid. If I put my hands at 12 and 6 I hear the noise. It sounds like the metal on the tailgate flexing.
