Jingle in rear end

I’ve noticed all of a sudden that any little bump or hole in the road is setting off this high pitch jingle in the rear end….it sounds kind of like keys rattling…I’ve looked under the rear end and I can’t find anything loose…at first I thought that maybe it was a nut or something loose on the brake line because it is made of metal but there isn’t anything loose on it….PLEASE HELP IT’S EMBARASING

Do you have a hitch? I have a shackle mount in mine and it rattles when I hit a bump.
Possibly an exhaust hanger is loose and the tips are hitting the bumper?
I don't know, just a few ideas off the top of my head.

No I don't have a hitch. The hangers for my tips was the first thing i checked...it does kind of sound like that...The best way for me to explain the sound is like change in your pocket. It's a really high pitch sound

could be santa claus trying to make a visit to your truck early but since a ranger is so fast he cant catch it.

But seriously I would still pull the drums off the rear axle and check those brakes. The drum brakes could be gone even though the fronts just went. My rears were completely shot at 90K. So at 70 they could be gone.
