Chasing a noise..looking towards T-Case relocation Bracket.

I have an 05 LJ. Automatic. All stock except Ive been running 31" Mickey Thompson MTZs since 30k miles. (I now have 76k) Stock Tires were 30".

I changed the steering stabilizer and changed the speedo Gear and thats it.

Very shortly after getting the new tires, I noticed a strange rattle, vibration, grind as I come to a stop. It feels like the transmission/t-case area.

If I drive at say 10-15 mph I can hear it as I come to a slow stop. If I drive at highway speeds as Im slowing down for the last 10mpg I can hear it for a second as I stop. Ive put the jeep in neutal just to take it out of gear and I was able to recreate the sound with NO change. Ive even coasted in neutral, turned off the engine and still can get the same rattling metal sound the last few MPH while braking.

I know the logical assumption is the brakes but its not a shimmy or anything like that. The sound is comming from under the floor boards and sometimes rattles the dash.

Ive been reading about relocating some parts of the t-case off the tub and on to a relocation bracket. So yesterday I started putting my hand on the transmission hump as I brake and I can definately feel and hear the sound now...its in that area. Although Im not sure my solution is the actual issue...

any help would be great....

p.s. You don't need a relocation bracket unless you have a BL or t case drop.
