Hello i just bought a 2001 jeep cherokee and i have a few questions. One does anyone have the rattling in the cargo area when the vehicle is stopped. It sounds like it coming from underneath the jeep but when your in the front sounds like its the spare or something, very confusing. Also when u shoft it to drives the transmission shifts hard into drive. I was just wondering about theses things. Other than that I Love It.

Yep, check to make sure that everything is tight underneath. Also, I'm assuming it's an auto transmission? Has the fluid ever been changed? Is it at the proper level? Does it only do it when shifting into gear or when accelerating? Have you checked your driveshaft u-joint?

The exhaust is pretty easy to check yourself - just climb under and see if it moves when you try shaking it. Not sure what kind of weather you drive in, but I'm very happy with the ProComp AT's I have on my F250 - I'm at 40,000 miles on them and there's still quite a bit of tread left on them.
