I have a '96 Ranger with the same issue. When in neutral with the clutch pedal out, I hear the rattle. If I push the clutch pedal in, or even rev the engine while in neutral, the rattle will go away.

It could be one of two things, first it might be the throwout bearing, second it could be that the oil has leaked out of your trans and the input bearing is dry. Check the fluid in the trans.
