When the drive shaft needs to be replaced is it usually the front one on a 2004

(2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee)
I hear rattling sounds in the front of the vehicle like something is loose and tapping against metal it gets worse the faster the car goes
What seems to make the problem better or worse? It's worse the faster the car travels
How long have you had this problem? Since I bought it used 3 weeks ago

Hello, it's unfortunately impossible to know what is going on without a physical inspection of your vehicle. Sure, it could be a driveshaft, but it could be many other components causing the noise. Have a qualified, skilled technician have a look at the vehicle and see where the concern is originating from.

The dealership where I bought the car told me it was the drive shaft that needed to be replaced. Since I have 4WD and the noise is in the front do I only replace the front or should I replace the front and the back both and the U-Joints? I was also told this is a common problem with Jeeps is this true?

The drive shaft you should replace is going to be the one that has been verified to have noise. Impossible to guess from here based on the provided information alone.
