Rattling noise coming from rear of Wrangler

I have a 2013 JK sport, automatic, with a 2.5 lift, 33" BFG's as the only mods I have and I had those done a couple years ago at around 40k miles. I have 102k miles on it.

Recently, I've noticed a rattling noise when I shift the vehicle into drive or reverse, it sounds like it's coming from the rear. It's continuous meaning it occurs when I stop, or accelerate.

However when I parked in my drive way, I noticed the rattling sound again coming from the rear of my vehicle when I shut my doors.

Any ideas of what this could be?

Also, another issue I've had is when I startup my vehicle, sometimes it stalls out after I start it up, let it warm up for a couple minutes, and once I shift into drive or reverse, it stalls, but this is quickly remedied by simply restarting the vechicle....anyone have this issue before? This one has been going on ever since I bought it at 30K miles.

First thing to check would be the jack. It fits into a cubby, and relies on the jack being tightened against the space it is in to stop it from rattling.
