It sounds like your describing the sound the aftermarket intake makes. All intake systems that use a smooth tube instead of the rubber flex stuff will be louder than stock and make weird noises

Lol I have cranked t-bars and rear shackles. Drives real good still and does awesome off road but I have to be careful not to flex the rear too much or the tires grab the fenders. I need to body lift it

Ya that's a better choice. I was planning on a lift of some sorts and I needed big tires for ground clearance cause I wheel a lot
