Rotational metal on metal "Zing"???? Help please

Just bought a 2005 lwb 4.0 6-speed with 52,000 miles on it.

It has a bs 2,000 mile warranty that covers drivetrain, transmission and engine from the dealership.

I purchased the car on Friday and while driving today, Monday, I hear a weird noise. It's almost a rotational zing metal on metal sound. It happens at random times, sometimes longer than the last, usually at speeds 15-65 (too sketchy after 65 to test).

I've tried doing circles in parking lots, pushing in the clutch, dead stop rack to rack steering trying to get it to make the noise but nothing works on que. It did do it with the circles both with the clutch in and while in gear.

Any input would be greatly appreciated as this is my first Jeep, thank you!

While doing the circles I should be clear that it happened for a few seconds on the third rotation and stopped and started a few times but not by doing anything like accelerating more or less.

Just something to check. Brake pad warning sensors.

They resurfaced the calipers and changed the brake pads as noted on carfax. It happens at random times not associated with brake application is the weird thing.

Where I bought the jeep is located near beaches that allow driving with permits. Do you guys/gals think it could be sand inside something? I don't have a day off til Sunday and Monday to have it looked at. Again, any input is appreciated. Other than this I love my Jeep. Ive owned a 99 Acura integra, 2007 Honda civic SI 4dr, 2012 VW GTI, 00 ninja 7x7r, 03 Buell firebolt and 05 HD night train and nothing is more fun to cruise in/on

Talked to the manager today. He is setting up a time with service to have them look at it. If its drivetrain, transmission or engine they will fix it free under the warranty. I think it's a bearing or something rotational on the a-arms

UPDATE: it was a twig on the inside of the rotor and (some kind of) heat shield or plate. It was scoring the backside of the rotor pretty bad. I think it was some kind of trash from when they did the brake job but whatever. Thanks to everyone who has commented.
