Rubicon rattle only at high speeds

Brand new to the forum, my name is Connor and I'm from tucson.
I'm having issues pin pointing where exactly a rattle/chatter could be coming from. It sounds like its coming from the transmission diredtly below the shifter, It starts at around 55 and gets louder with increasing speed. The jeep is an 04 rubicon with the 5.5 RE long arm kit and 35's

Check your pinion angle..I bet you dont have a CV driveline. Or your upper control arms are adjusted incorrectly

It has a cv driveline and it's more of a repetitive banging than a rattle. It sounds as if something is constantly hitting. you can feel the vibration the shifter, but there are no bad driving repercussion's from it.

Check your tranny and Xfer case mounts. Just crawl under there and start eyeballing things...everything that moves, everything that assists in the jeep moving
