Chain noise?

Hello, I've run a few searches, but haven't hit on anything so far...

While rolling (coasting or driving) I hear a chain noise coming from the center of the jeep. It stops as I slow down to about 15 or 20 MPH. Well, at least I think it is a chain noise.

It drives fine though.

The only thing that I think has a chain would be the transfercase. I would check the fluid level, because you should not be able to hear it, if it is that.

Well...

Turns out it was the soft top snaps that were rattling at the roll bar. They weren't snapped and were just bouncing around as I went over 20 MPH. Allow me to quote myself, from my first post here in the Welcome section:
