Interior noises/solution

Hey people,

I'm the PROUD owner of a 2000 Classic, all happiness but there's one point..

The interior noises are killing me, I know this is not a top luxury vehicle, but I believe that a well desing jeep shouldn't have that amount of noises.

Please let me know which are the ones you can hear from inside the cab and the solution for it.

Particulary there's a noise coming at around 60 mph that sounds like cricket from the second row below or under my seat..

Cheers!

my driverseat squeaks really bad. I've actually gotten used to it and dont even notice it anymore. My friend always reminds me though when shes in the jeep. Its actually bad enough where you can hear it squeaking OUTSIDE the jeep. My friend proved this to me one day when she was really annoyed by it. I stood outside it with the doors closed and she sat in the seat... yup.. you can hear it outside the jeep.

Whats your friend doing in that seat.....?





My 99 has some interior noise as well. Mainly coming from the vents in the dash when going around corners. It drives me crazy every time it happens, but I dont have the time right now to rip the dash off to fix it.



The things happening under your rear seat might be the jack. Pop the seat up and make sure everything is tight.

My driver seat squeaks a bit too, so do all the seats, some of the interior panels are missing some screws, so they sqeak pretty bad too, and a couple other mystery sqeaks show up from time to time.

My solution is to turn up the radio!

I think XJs are about as quiet as any early 80's designed 4x4 can be.

Put subs in it and you won't notice it at all.

hahaha I've actually let her drive the jeep before. She wants a wrangler but i'm trying to convince her XJs are better. More room in the back for... stuff... plus she was trying to prove to me that the noise was so loud. obviously I knew exactly how loud it is hahaha, but since shes a jeep girl I did what she said and let her show me the problem

My glove box squeaks/rattles like crazy above 50 mph for some reason. If I open it and slam it shut it stops... for about 10 minutes. The only way to stop it is to jam a 3/8" grade 8 bolt in the crevice next to it. Yes, it must be a grade 8

I turn up my two stock speakers. It all goes away.

Plus I have whistles, and a rack, and an antenna. It's all loud as hell. Plus my exhaust.

My exhaust is really loud and rattles EVERYTHING in my rig. The hatch passenger side door panel, the garage remote spot in the overhead console, the ash tray, and the tray beneath the ash tray all rattle. I am still looking for the solution for my hatch. Ive moved the bumpers in and out and tried to align the striker to no avail. I know its not aligned though because water gets in somewhere.
