Hearing a ticking sound

i have a a 99 wrangler with 79k miles and i have just noticed that i hear a ticking sound while speeding up. i dont hear it under 35. i hear it once i hit 40 and up. i checked my exhaust for any holes and didnt get much. any thoughts on how to address the problem im all ears.

Yeah exhaust leak is the first place so check the connection at the head pipe to exhaust manifold. Other ticks associated with speed and are constant is the T-Case chain slapping the outer case. You may have something stuck in the u-joints in the front diff. It could also be something stuck in the dust shield around your disc brakes. And then it could be a u-joint on either shaft.
