Clicking noise coming from rear on 2005 WK Limited with QDII

I have a weird clicking noise coming form the rear axle on a 2005 Grand Cherokee Limited, 5.7L, QDII. Sounds like playing cards in spokes of bicycle wheel. I have attached a link to a video I found on YouTube as I cannot record it well. Sound is exactly the same as in this video. Any help would be appreciated.

Maybe axle bearings, or driveshaft .Are you certain it is the axle? Looks like you have a laundry list of mods on it...
I would have it put up on a lift with it running in gear to pinpoint it...

Thanks for the reply Tom. Rear wheel bearings have been replaced recently. I am not positive it is the axle. And today I took it to a Gear and Axle shop today and had it evaluated. The owner took it for a drive and put it up on a lift. He has never heard the noise before. He thinks the diffs are fine as well as the driveshafts. He is pointing to the transfer case and suggested to try a fluid change first. I did that today and it didn't seem to help. I think the next thing is to take it to a transmission repair shop and see what they think. Any other ideas for now?

Thanks again!

I fixed this on my jeep yesterday. Upon 2 weeks of research, I leaned the glue that holds the parking brake pad in place sucks. The pads tend to fall off the drum, and cause a clicking noise. All I did was remove the rotor on my rear brake, and my pads just fell off. No more noise, but no parking brake for now. Hope it helps!

Thanks for the advice. I pulled the rotors as suggested and the parking brake pads fell out on both sides. I thought this would fix the issues. Lo and behold, it did not. Since I have also replaced the rear diff fluid, still making noise. I think I my need to visit a tranny shop and see what they say.

Rear drive shaft. Mine did the same, replaced shaft with replaceable joints and it's gone. I couldn't even articulate the rear joint by hand.
