auto trans - small rattle when taking off

i have a 4cyl auto 98 jeep. when i put it in gear, and give gas it rattles a little what seems like under the console gearshift. i can feel it and hear a slight tapping sound. it also does it under heavy acceleration.
I thought i had read on the forum somewhere that there is a bolt gone loose under there causing that...i cannot find the thread.
So, does anyone have any idea ... it would be sweet just to tighten up a bolt to fix.
