Jackhammer / ABS Noise

I dont know what to search for and it's kind of hard to explain but... 2018 Latitude 17,500mi. It happened a couple thousand miles ago when I was just driving and it sounded like a jackhammer in the front of the Jeep. I thought maybe I hit a patch of ice and sort of brushed it off to traction noises. I just heard it again the other day with no snow and light rain. My foot was on the accelerator so it was not braking and the traction lights didn't come on either. Any thoughts?

I answered your other post with this:

My noise sounded more like a clutch bearing (it wasn't, I'm just offering that for comparison). It was more of a persistent grumble, but very noticeable. Maybe sounds a bit like some aggressive AT tires, but it didn't start till around 30MPH. [I had a software update that] moved the speed to 50ish so road noise pretty much drowns it out. I'm taking off the snow tires tomorrow so I'll be able to hear the noise better after this.

In my case I can make the noise go away if I turn off the ESC. If turning off the ESC makes your noise go away, then its probably the same thing. From what I've read on here some drivers hardly notice it, others say its deafening; I guess I'm in between. Apparently its different from one vehicle to another.

I think I've decided the other noise would be remedied with the software. This is more like something is getting hung up somewhere or pieces banging together. It scared the hell out of me that I called people immediately after - they had no idea what I was talking about! And this is only once and a while, I've had it 7 months and it's only done it twice.
