    When I take it out in the dunes, is it normal to hear like the roof metal pop in and out on extreme terrain and angles? I would figure it is because Im putting that thing through some pretty tough SH*T.

    Thanks!

    It also could be the inner fenders on the rear also being hit by a tire , if the bumpstops are shot or too short .

    Seems normal to me. Both my 87 and my brothers 79 do that when we go wheeling. It happens when the truck gets flexed out, and the sheet metal in the cab also flexes.

    My 78 does this as well. It seems to be a normal thing. Anyone I've ever talked to, told me this is normal. So don't worry
