Popping or Chipping noises on Accel, after turn?!

Ok, to start, Jeep has always had a sluggish start sometimes. This issue is new and doesn't seem to correlate.

Basically a couple of weeks ago I started getting belt squeal on cold start. Goes away pretty quickly.

Now Im getting a popping noise or just a noise cause even popping doesn't accurately describe the sound (see video). It almost sounds like a loud failing relay (but too loud for that).

It has recently started and happens AFTER I make a turn AND accelerate. Tho it just happened, for the first time, today that I got the same noise moving straight at about 45. It never does it at idle, above 35, or moving straight (except the once today).

I have also noticed that when it happens at night (because lights are on) I notice the gauge lights flicker with he noise, ever so slightly, but it deff there.

Apologies for the crap video. Gotta turn up volume to hear it. It happens at beginning and end.

Fan hitting the shroud? Motor mount or tranny mount a little loose?

Looks like it was the starter just barely engaging
