Does the rattle change with clutch engagement/disengagement?

Could it be a loose heatshield on the catalytic converter.

Yep,I should've added that....it stops when I push in the clutch. And I have replaced the flywheel and installed a petrol works clutch about 2 yrs ago...can't figure it out......

There are a few things i can think of without actually hearing it. One did you put a new pilot bearing in the flywheel? Also did you do the propper breakin on the new clutch when you installed it? If so did you also put in a new throwout bearing? If all of these things were replaced when the new clutch was i dont know what it might be. First thing i would do is take off the inspection plate to see if there is anything from wheeling etc in there, or if anything went out on you. If you can't visually see the issue you'll have to pull the trans. But on the bright side when you do take it out it's at least an easy job.

Yea man,replaced all of that. Got it all at Low Range offroad all at the same time. I'm wondering if my throw out bearing is bad? It makes this rattle going down the road too?

Sure sounds like TO bearing. Luckily its a snap to pull the trans, just pulled mine out yesterday for new bearings/synchros. It took about an hour to remove.

It even looks like one could move the trans back and replace the bearing w/o actually dropping the trans. If, of course, that's actually what the culprit is.

Yah just take off the inspection plate and look with a light. But I can tell you one thing, when it goes it goes. Once the TO bearing goes you’ll be dead in the water. When mine went I was at a stop light and couldn’t move. I had to start it in gear and just shift using the rpm's because the clutch did nothing. Also you can just shift it back and swap it if that's what you choose to do. One good thing is the bearing isn't much money.

Did you use threadlock on the flywheel bolts? its not unknown for them to fall out, in fact I've never seen an SJ with a full set of bolts.
