Front end rattling while throttle applied in 2wd

\015 While driving on road have experienced a front end rattle (sounds like a chain rattle of sorts) while pressing gas pedal. Have replaced drivers side hub assembly, both 4wd actuators( i guess iwe), and solenoid. sound is barely there while in 4wd, someone thought it may be transfer case adjusters or such. any other suggestions or how hard it may be to fix myself?\015
