Pull the inspection cover underneath and check to see if your flexplate bolts are loose.

Wow I'm an idiot, just saw that it's a stick...

When does the sound happen? Does your XJ have a factory infinity system? IIRC the amp for the system is bolted under the driver's seat.

Maybe one of the transmission mount bolts backed out? With the engine off and cold try rocking the engine back and forth with your arms. If something is hitting you should be able to duplicate the sound.
