I had that issue on my cherokee.. I don't think that is it.. it is less metallic, and more airy maybe.. muffled anyways..
Not the prominent knock of a u joint.
The exhaust is rusty, but no discernable holes.. maybe the header gasket?
It did mysteriously stop this afternoon... it was their half the day, then just went away... that freaked me out the most..... things that randomly stop eventually die forever..lol
At first I thought it seemed related to the transmission gear speed.. then it kinda sounded like it was keeping time with the pistons...
Are the gears metal, ir some poly something?
I wonder about the difference In sound
Ways I can be sure of something?
