metalic rattle

I have just bought a 2002 wrangler, no mods. When I accelerate gently from idling there is a metallic rattle for about 1 second as the car picks up. This only happens with gentle acceleration, no rattle if I accelerate more aggressively. I am a newbie and know nothing. If anyone can help I would be grateful.

Lol look around every crack and crevice. I found a socket rolling around, a couple bolts, some cotter pins. That's was inside the jeep. In the engine compartment i found a few other things lol some more tools (screwdriver, another socket, and spare light bulbs lol) i think the previous owner had early signs of alzheimers because that's a lot of stuff to leave behind. But hey I've done it once or twice also. That's the first step i would take if nothings found then, im not to sure but someone else well lend some words of wisdom im sure.
