clanking sound

My 97 4.0 Tj has been making a clanking sound from the front passenger side of the jeep. I have a 6 inch lift and 33's that were on it when i bought it. When i first bought the jeep there were no such noises. Anyone have any ideas what may cause this. If i go under 25 there is nothing but once i get some speed going it sounds like a gremlin is under my jeep beating it with a hammer.

Engine noise or chasis noise. Time to isolate. You could crawl under and take a look at driveshaft and axle u-joints, exhaust nbot rubbing front driveshaft and the cat is not banging on the T-case skid. Could be almost anything but the exhaust is always a player.
