Did you check the catalyltic converters? If the bed is broken up, you will hear these type of noises.

Hopsing, are you sure it's not an engine knock due to a bad connecting rod bearing or main bearing? Low on oil at some point? Overrevved on the highway?

But just to make sure I will hook oil pressure gauge up it just seems to be coming from in between it comes and goes and you don't hear it on deceleration only at idle sometimes it really sounded like loose converter bolts or loose flywheel was wondering if any problems inside converter can sound like that and the sound is not there in gear

Not a big Chrysler guy myself, but I do know they have a failsafe system for worn, or jumped timing belts, try unplugging the cam sensor, see if it starts. If it does, timing is off, check belt!
