Yip....

It could happen too.

Or it could be your torsion bar mounts.

it was neither torsion bar mounts or the hood.

one of the body mount rusted through, and the transfer case was hitting the body

**Update

We put the Jimmy up on the lift, and checked the mounts and while it was hanging on the lift, everything appeared fine.

We then saw the rusted hole in the body mount, so we wedged a peice of wood up in there to see if the noise stopped. Took it for a test drive, and sure enough the noise was still there.

My neighbor opened up the door and stuck his head down by the road, looking under the truck to see if he could pinpoint the problem. When we got back to the garage, he got down on his back, shoot torsion bar, and bam, it was torsion bar mounts, not the body mounts. It was driving us crazy, and finally we figured out the problem.

how were you able to see that the mounts were what was causeing it. the only thing i could see on the one side it looked like it had hit the frame at one time but hasn't for a long time. like you could see the rust but it had been there for a long time. if you understand what i'm saying. i did however put rubber on both sides including where it had hit and it didn't do anything for it.

ya man you were right.

my neighbor, whos been a mechanic his entire life says you have his respect, because he couldnt figure out what the hell it was, and if you didnt tell me it was the torsion bar mount, we would have not known what it was, and the car would probabley go to the junk yard.
