Within the last three days I’ve had a most annoying clunk from the back left of my trail boss appear. Ive heard this clunk once before : on my daughters 20 year old 120 thousand mile jeep patriot. And when I did some investigating online it says it’s most likely leaf spring clunking. It sounds like I have a body in my trunk rolling around…if I had a trunk. At first I thought my spare tire was loose or my muffler was loose or my new side boards were loose. Nope! Heading to the dealership tomorrow. Anyone else have this issue? I’m not living with this loud annoying crappy sounding clunk that’s for sure. Anyone else experience this? I realize I’m not driving a BMW or a Mercedes but gimme a break! Grrrr.

That tsb shows 2019 only. Is your 2.5 month old truck a 2019?

Well, it AIN'T so. Was just a subpar install on the Amp power steps by a truck shop that was knocking against the bottom of my truck. Why didn't I catch that? Goodbye, $152...which is what the oil separator would have cost me . :(

No clunk in mine but I noticed the factory Rancho shock in the rear blew a seal at 10k miles. A bit disappointing considering my off-roading has been relatively light. Dealership is replacing it under warranty, no questions asked.
