Funny sound while driving

So yesterday I noticed some funny clanking/popping sound under my feet while I was driving, usually around 40mph... I wondered what it was. Searching here and found similar thread about in TJ forums... they said it was probably a bad U joint and the drive shaft or axles... what do you think it was? I already called the dealer and will bring by them Tuesday but I thought I asked here if anyone had the same on their JK.

My JKU was just about 2 months old with a little over 2K in mileage and its been my daily driver. What could it be?

Thanks.

Hmmm. With such low miles
That can be almost anything. Loose bolt (shock, swaybar link), axle/driveshaft u-joints which I highly doubt. Loose fender flare/liner.
Have you looked underneath and felt around at all ?

I looked but not sure what to look for.... I am new to all this... and mechanically challenge but everything looks normal nothing is out of ordinary that I could tell that it was broke right away... the sound is annoying though and I feel it would get worse if I don't have it looked at...

It sounds like a loose shock bolt. Also, look at the two big bolts holding the brake on. On my 2014 Rubicon X I found the lower bolt was half way out from the factory when I was checking on the E-brake. Have you noticed the noise more when turning, hitting bumps, etc?
