Another Mystery Noise...well maybe not!

So knowing how all of you Defender Wizards and Warriors love a good mystery noise problem...

So two weeks ago behind the mall I decided to go off road...well afterward when I ran over a few parking blocks in the field I developed this mystery noise. smashed up some of the armor pretty good. I think is the U-Joint hitting the plate. It was just happening between 65 and 70 but it happened today at 35! so its getting worse. Look at the video at 25 and 40 seconds in. sorry for the wobble but video recording at 65 isn't easy in a D90...as you all know!

take that plate off and see if the noise goes away. I hope that this problem doesn't mean you won't follow me in the mall parking lot anymore.

Yeah I'm just glad you were in front of me to winch me up...Jeeps weren't made to winch LR's. Didn't it take two to pull you up? lol! I didn't realize I have full video of you trying to carve out that dirt wall with your front bumper....I'm going to have to post that today!

Wow, did not expect that grimy of undercarriage on your truck. I figured you had 3 asians with toothbrushes who scrubbed it after your mall excursions.

Well it's illegal to employ under privileged Asians in this state...I have a few Umpa Lumpas coming over this weekend on loan from Tony's canvas shop as orders have slowed down...(so order those seat covers and keep the under privileged and persecuted employed!) The NSA has them on furlough also.

As far as the grime...this is why...

Thanks for showing off my superior driving skills. See if I ever come over and drink your Mexican Cokes and use your tools again. You can't even see Dillards from that view.
