Got a better pic/location/where do the hoses go?

It looks kinda like a Ford EGR Valve Position Sensor, but the RENIX XJ's didn't have EVPs and the HO XJ's don't have EGR's...

Purge valve for the emissions system. Yes, it makes a repetitive noise, and dealers are aware of it. My early 2000 makes the same noise, the late 2000 does not. Not certain, but I think they may have changed the mount, either location or used a softer rubber isolator.

It's harmless, albeit annoying. Turn up the stereo.

Maybe you just started noticing?????

Mine has done it since Day One. I mentioned it the first time I took it in for service, and the tech knew immediately what it was and what it sounds like.

Ah, you're in VA. Did the weather recently get colder there? Did the start of the sound (or your noticing it) correspond to a drop in temperature? If so, it could be because the rubber isolators in the mount aren't as resilient when cold. Mine is a lot louder in winter.

LOL bigger tires will always do the trick...my 2000 also has that problem...anyways, jeep has a replacement for 25 bux or so...i dont know if the part numbers are the same all over but here it's 4669475AB. Eagle pretty much explained why thats happening so its not going to hurt anything to leave it like that. As for the steering wheel, i have the same problem...when i'm stopped if i turn the wheel slightly left or right i can almost feel the squeeks in the brake pedal. Made me nervous at first but now that i know what it is i'm just trying to ignore it...(unless someone has an easy fix for this?)

I can hear mine in the cab.... on a quiet night and concentrating on the sounds.

I agree that the sound can probably be deadened a little by using softer rubber mounts. Check your canister to see whether it's touching the body somewhere, since sound can travel and may be amplified.
