Rickety jeep body

I own a 2000 Jeep Wrangler and I've been looking for answers about this everywhere.. I've got a good sized lift on it (don't know the specifics but it's brand new) and whenever I go off road (or over any sort of bump) the entire body is rickety, it's so incredibly loud and uncomfortable to all passengers that it makes me question whether or not this is normal. All of the mechanics that it's been to say it's a great jeep and that given the opportunity they'd buy it. What do I do? I feel like it's not at all normal.

Post pics of your rig including closeups of the steering and suspension. What exactly is loud? Suspension squeaking does the body making creaking sounds?

The sound is uncomfortable or the ride?

Tire size, load rating, and pressure?
What shocks do you have on it?

Make a video/audio of the noise and it will be obvious.

p.s. It's not normal.

First check your tire pressure and then post here exactly what it is together with the exact tire size. Then, can you see any brand-name on the shock absorbers? Stiff rides are usually caused by excessively tire pressures and/or the wrong model shock absorbers.

When you have a choice, buy American made.
