Unhappy Noise after being on freeway

Hi my 2003 x makes a noise after being on the freeway. It's a clunking sound from the axel I believe. I put new tires and had all the fluids checked in the transfer case and both axels. I felt around for anything loose. Doesn't make any sounds running around local. It's quiet on the freeway just clunks starting off again after the off ramp. I am unsure where to look. Please help

No pretty stock. Someone wrote they had an egg shaped diff and when it got hot it thumped. I am new to jeeps and have never heard of that.
