Check the exhaust mine rattled every so often against the shock and side of the fuel tank skid plate. I realigned the exhaust and it doesn't rattle or anything anymore.

When is it doing it. Driving, acceleration, braking?

Had the same thing going on.. Turned out to be the one shock bushing on my driver side.. Didn't hear it just driving down the road but when I would pull into the driveway slow is when I heard it the best.. Just had someone push the jeep up and down until I could locate the noise.
