Rattling Noise

I have an 06 grand cherokee laredo, and I'm hearing a rattling noise. It kicks up, and is loudest, when I first start it. I can hear it while driving, and while idling. It seems to go faster when I accelerate. It also seems to be coming from the front somewhere. It sounds like something may be loose, but it's nothing that I can see just by looking. I don't want to have to take it in and spend hundreds if it's something simple. Any ideas of what this could be?

Is it your heat shields on your exhaust? I'd be checking them first.

Have someone sit in the rear drivers seat while you drive. When you sit in the front seat sounds bounce from the windscreen and give you a false direction. I had the same issue the sound was loose bolts in the rear of the plano sun roof. The dealer told me that the bolts were ready to fall out. That sound in the front is now gone.
