Clanking noise under center console area...

I just tried searching for what could possibly be causing this clanking noise, but I came up empty. I thought I've read about something needing to be replaced under the shifter or within the shifter or something, but of course now I can't find the thread.

I have an 04 X with a 5-speed, 6cyl.

I just noticed this noise this morning after I parked and shut-off the Jeep. While driving, I didn't notice. As I was getting out of the jeep, I heard a "clank-clank-clank" noise from under the console area. I already have the console removed (working on the subwoofer) so nothing was in the way. I got the sound to repeat when the jeep moved slightly front to back. It sounded like it was coming from directly under the emergency brake, so I took a look underneath and rocked the jeep front to back and I could hear the "clank-clank" but didn't see anything by the emergency brake area. Instead, from underneath, it sounded like it was coming from somewhere under the skid plate.

Any ideas what this could be?
