i need a fellow jeepers opinion/help please!

Hey guys i recently bought a 2014 jeep wrangler sport 6 speed last week. It's a great car. i got it brandnew with 95 km on it. currently it has 350 ish. Ive read alot about the clutches on thease and noticed something about mine. i need some input regarding this. ive drove stick for about 9 year now and sometimes i notice when i change gears i can hear something. It's kind of hard to explain but ill try my best. this maybe normal but i am not sure. when i change gears and let off the clutch i hear something that i believe to be the gears possibly changing from under ther jeep. i know that sounds stupid but i really dont how to explain it. seems like when i change a gear perfectly with the right amount of gas i dont hear it but when i change a gear and i guess dont give it enough gas i can hear the noise. It's not like im not giving it gas just think maybe its not enough? still getting used to the clutch on it but i haventhad any problems with it despite the noise. im very sorry for the lack of info on the noise. i have no clue how to explain it. i seriously think im over thinking it but i want to be sure and get some others opinion about it. once again i feel its just the tranny switching over gears. PLEASE HELP lol

The 6 speed is a little clunky. If you shift and let off the gas at the right (or wrong) moment, I can see it making a clank sound. Keep driving it and get used to what it does. I kinda hate the way 5th and 6th are just a little bit more over than it feels like it should.

'13 JKUR soft top 6 speed. That's a Jeep.

Does it sound kind of like a "marbles in a can" noise..?

It does this a lot when you go into 4 LO as well...

My hypothesis is it makes this noise when it alternates from the engine driving the wheels to the wheels driving the engine, and vice versa. You'll notice it a lot when alone on a dirt road, windows down or doors off...

It's apparently normal, I guess, though I don't really like it...

i wouldnt say it sounds like that to be honest. more just like a mechanical noise. im thinking its normal. just sounds like gears changing.
any one else have any opinions?

I have a 2014 Willys and I get the same thing, if there is too much of a diffence in speed and I let off the clutch a little too quick I get it. It seems to me to be almost like a little gear slap or something. Can hear it very well with the jeep naked and it doesn't sound terrible or like a typical damaging sound. A mechanic buddy of mine (not familiar with jeeps) says it's probably due to lack of insulation and a bunch of manual cars have similar it's just harder to hear. That being said next time I'm near the desire I'll have then take a listen to be sure.
