Caveat: I'm a Jeep noob, but not to automotive mechanics/NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness) issues.
Any non-stock wheel offsets?
Checked rear diff fluid lately?
I'd try getting a large friend to ride in the back, and see if that changes anything.
Play with your e-brake when the noise happens, and see if it sings a different tune.
Likewise, try dragging the service brake, lightly, and listen for changes.
Similarly, throw it in neutral (and/or push in the clutch, if available) while it's happening (and if safe) and listen for changes.
Definitely need more info--pics might help the Jeep experts here, too.
(As the kids USED to say: "Get jiggy with it!) LOL
Good luck, you'll get there.
