Clicking sound when cold

When I start the Jeep when it's cold outside, I accelerate and get a pretty loud "clicking" sound coming from the rear of the Jeep. I thought it may be a loose hanger because it goes away when it gets warmer, but I went out and looked and none of the hangers seem loose.

Any ideas what this might be?

I think 1HP (hamster power) would be a lot better than my 3.8

I have been sticking popcorn in your muffler every night. Once it pops you can't hear it anymore!

I had the same problem... then I realized it was just my teeth chattering from the cold until my heat kicked in.

Too much to list but never enough.

I was getting a similar noise. It was coming from my stock rear driveshaft. I replaced the shaft with a Tatton recently and the noise has since disappeared.

Son of a bitch I really hope that isn't it. The CV joints and boots are all in good working order...were yours in bad shape when you replaced them?

The axle side looked ok at first glance. When I removed it it basically fell apart and had very little grease in it.

The sound mine had was more of a chirp.

To eliminate that possibility, remove the rear shaft and drive in 4wd hi after it has sat all night. If the noise is still present you will know the rear shaft is ok.

Good idea. It's colder than the deepest layer of hell tonight so I may try this in the morning.

Yep, not the driveshaft. I've been planning on replacing and relocating the muffler anyways, so I guess this is as good a time as any. We'll see if that fixes it.

Just an FYI, and hope it's this simple: Our 2010's and 2011's make an ungodly rattling start up and take off sound, as compared to 07's-09's. I cringe every time I hear one of them pulling away. It's a big steaming thank you to Chrysler for the completely pointless ECON system on the 10's and 11's.

My jeep is currently doing the same. I've had the Transmission, Rear Drive Shaft and cv joint changed and still no fix.

I'm going on year 3 with this stupid sound that happens only when it is cold out and last about 10 minutes after starting the jeep and driving.
