weird noise

So, I bought a 99 TJ 4.0 5speed. There is a noise coming from under the car when i first start rolling. It goes away once im moving but from a dead stop it sounds like the trans is about to fall out to the damn thing. Coming from sports cars with independent suspension, it sounds to me like a cv joint is going bad. The kicker is that i can feel something banging around underneath and the shifter goes crazy side to side action in my hand. Last night i did a 2" body lift and 32"s. Today its a lot louder than its ever been. Anyone got any ideas what that noise might be?
