89 yj rattle, u joints or what?

Ok so the rattle just started a couple of days ago. It happens when I take my foot off the accelerator. The rattle sound slows down as I come to a stop. Thought it was the t-case needing lube but that didn't fix the problem. Bearings, u joints or ?????? Thanks for helping.

I will defiantly check out my axles too. Thanks for the tip. Noticed my muffler is hanging by a thread. Amazing what one can discover when that are paying attention.
