2008 JK Rubicon with raddles and squeaks...

Hi, I am trying to trade my modified 2005 TJ Sport with under 32k on it for a Rubi with 90,000 miles on it.

The jeep does have a lift but the owner spray painted it so I can't tell what kind it is. All I know that its is rocking 33in/12in tires with the stock rims and their were wheel spacers in the trunk.

When I test drove it, I noticed that I could here rattling in the engine compartment and squeaks (Assuming breaks)

It drove great for 50 miles an hours, but I didn't get a chance to get her on the highway.

Should I be worried? or is this a problem a newbe can fix...

I am new to the car buying/trading world. I have never delt with a dealer. I bought my first jeep love at a auctions.

I'd be worried about it from your description, but it's hard to tell without hearing it myself. Was it in the engine? Suspension? Keys jingling on the steering column?

It sounded like rocks being shaked around in a can and its coming from the front.
