Exclamation What is making this sound?

Hey everyone, im completely new this this as I come from the mustang world. I just picked up my first jeep last week its a 08 JK unlimited with 30k miles and ive noticed when I hit speed bumps I get this really annoying and concerning noise. If anyone has heard it before it know what it might be it would be greatly appreciated. I recorded it off my phone so its not the best volume, its probably best heard with headphones, you will know the noise when you hear it.

Thank you for your help!

Can you give an approximate location of the noise?
Front, back, high, low etc.

I had a weird knocking sound coming from the rear of my jeep when i would take off or hit a bump. Ended up being my tailgate latch had loosened slightly and needed readjusting. Its like the latch wasnt holding the tailgate firm and allowing it to move.

Glad you figured it out. Congrats on a great find. Haven't seen many 08's with 30k miles.

really really hard to tell, I had my earbuds in trying to listen...check your sway bar links, suspension etc....just make sure everything is tight etc.
