Check your U-Joints but also check your exhaust bracket that goes between your belly pan and your under cariage. Mine broke and was a pain to figure out what it was.

Well I feel dumb.... I've looked under my Jeep before and I never saw anything. I decided to take a look and I fixed the clicking noise. Look what I found.....
