clicking noise from under my Jeep

'09 X 2dr. I noticed a constant "clicking" sound from underneath my X after I took it offroad and through some mud (over and over). When I was getting my oil changed at the dealership, I asked if they would check it out, they said they found a nail in the tire, and plugged it. Great, nail is gone....but the "clicking" sound remains. It sounds like cards in the spokes of your bike when I was a kid, and it's very annoying especially when doors and top are off. Any ideas?

It's def not a speedometer cable...seems like it's coming from the driver side, and it's for sure "under" the Jeep

Put the rear wheels up on jack stands and put it in drive. Try to locate the noise.

Another method: Go on the web and purchase a cheap microphone for a computer that has a long wire to connect it. Buy an extension cable if it is not long enough. Tape the microphone under the jeep in various places and record the sound. Try to position it to produce the loudest possible sound recorded to try and locate the source. You would be surprised how easy this method works to locate a noise. Next time you need to locate a noise, you will already have the microphone.

I just got the same sound after conquering a particularly "flexy" obstacle up in Colorado. It turned out that I finally ripped my front driveshaft boot and it was flap, flap, flapping against my engine...
