Repetitive clicking/thumping noise when accelerating coming under driver seat/t-case

I have a 98 Wrangler and itís making repetitive loud clicking/thumping noise when accelerating coming from under driver seat/t-case area. This noise gets louder as accelerating and quiets down when in neutral. The strange thing is that it sat over night and now itís not making any noise. Could it be a T-Case linkage issue/or a bad torque shaft bushing? I just donít understand how such a noise can just go away? Thanks.

Get underneath there and look/feel around, could be a broken linkage, a wire that came loose and the plug is clanking around, maybe a bad u-joint, maybe even something as simple as a stick that got jammed up there and now fell out since you say it stopped.

Welcome to the forum BTW
