weird starting noise??

97 TJ 4cyl... everytime i cold start it i get this strange noise near the front of the engine (its best heard near the alternator or through the grill) but ive replaced everything that has to do with the serpentine belt and its still there? Any help? (It kinda sounds like tacs in a soda can)

I'm having the same problem, it comes and goes though. Sounds like its coming from the front passenger side of the engine, and goes away as it heats up.

I haven't heard it lately, only when its in the 30's outside is when its noticeable. The noise for me is rpm dependant too.
