new Gc 4.0

I got my Jeep and I like it.....but how can I block out the whooo sound the engine makes in first gear upon acceleration? I know it is probably normal, but I would like to rid of it if possible. What causes it?

oh your jeep must have come with the optional Train Whistle feature, you might have to take it to the Jeep Dealership and have them disable that.

I do not want to say that I’m sure for 100%, but I think what you hearing is not an engine sound. I guess this is a typical jeep’s drivetrain sound. Jeep’s transmission noticeable noisy from the 1-2-3rd gear until it shifts to 4th gear or you gain speed up to 50mph. This is a normal sound, but it is very annoying sound. The only way to suppress this sound is to apply the sound attenuation mat, “Accumat” or “Dynamat” or whatever is available. Pit it directly to the floor sheet metal, and/or wrapping up the transmission tunnel. Just my crazy suggestion.

It look kind of easy actually....It "looks" as if I just have to remove the seats,console, and trim holding down the carpet and then take out the carpet and go to work.....Am I missing something here?

I'm not sure if I know how to do this right, but I know a few guys from another forum who realy did it. I mean they applied the sound attenuation mats in their Jeeps. I think it can be done, but how difficult it is I have no clue.
