01 Cherokee Sport XJ Exhaust Rattle

Has anyone ever had their exhaust system rattle? I just noticed it today and I'm not so sure how I could fix it, it's very noticable when I stop at a red light or if I'm in park. The steering wheel just begins to rattle along with the dash. Another problem is accelerating...it's taking a bit more of a push to accelerate to 25-30 mph, i'm not sure how else i can describe it
My jeep is an 01 jeep cherokee sport, if anyone has any info please post below

thanks

Cat converter? Those rattle bad when the **** inside em gets broken up and if it moves around and partially clogs exhaust that will make it accelerate slower.. but hard to tell without hearing it personally. After the jeep cools off a little pound the exhaust and pinpoint rattle.

it didn't sound like there was any junk stuck in there, however i'm not sure if it was. i came home and checked on it about 4h later and the rattle wasnt there, i assume because it was still cold. i'll see what else i can do, thanks

No problem, sometimes it will jam up and quit rattling for a while too. Or you could have a loose hanger too pretty muh just gotta start looking and shaking/hitting it.. but if it is the cat go with a magnaflow, I believe they're cheaper and flow better than oem
