My '82 f100 rattles from the front end when driving on on rough roads. Sound like it is comming from the front wheel area. Any ideas?

You didn't say if heavy metallic noise like mechanical problem in front end somewhere or more moderate that could be bodywork. If nothing in front end shows any slack (front end jacked up, weight off ) check bumper mounts, bodywork connections to frame etc for evidence of loose mounting or anything moving under stress of rough road.But check everything in steering, suspension, front brakes etc carefully first.

The most likely cause is bad ball joints or radius arm bushings..But check everything under the front for any signs of looseness or movement..
