Popping noise?

I might just be paranoid, but whenever I'm driving my TJ, I hear a popping noise randomly. It doesn't do it in any specific circumstance, and the noise is at random places on the jeep. Sounds like a rock banging my jeep but that wouldn't happen as frequently as it does, I just bought new mud tires, could it be rocks coming loose from the mud grip and hitting my jeep?

Control arm bushings, ball joints, tie rod ends, sway bay endlinks, shock mounts, engine mounts,...

The list of possibilities could go on for a few more items, but I'd check those first unless you have a specific area of the vehicle narrowed down or have already ruled some of those out.

It was just rocks flying out of the mud grips. Good to see it was just paranoia.
