Clicking noise when accelerating

I have a clicking noise coming from my Armada . It seems to be coming from the middle of the undercarriage / floorboards . As I accelerate the clicking becomes faster . When I slow down , obviously ; it slows . Any ideas what it might be ? U-joint , ball bearings/ bushings on rear drive shaft ? Possible rear axle issue ???

Garage
Dumb as it sounds maybe it's a good sized rock stuck in the tread of one of the tires?

Pristine, also check your exhaust manifolds. Certain years tend to develop small cracks in the manifolds which will sound like a clicking, especially under acceleration.
