Post Noise when in idling in neutral and clutch let out

MORNING!!

I have a 2008 X Unlimited 6sp man with 3500 miles...I noticed when in neutral and clutch let out, like when idling at a stoplight, that there is a rattle/ticking/marbly-like noise that goes away when the clutch is pushed in. It's the only time I've noticed it...The jeep is currently still stock and I have done no off-roading or "Jeepy good fun" yet. Can I assume this is just normal stuff?

Rattle, ticking... Several possibilities..
Loose damper springs in the clutch disk....a preload (no load drag) issue with the input shaft and/or cluster gear, in neutral the input shaft is always meshed with the cluster (head set).... Shift in first and drive as slow as you can short of stalling and listen whether the rattle is gone or not..
Again.. this noise should not be there and your dealer should look at it.. But it is indeed good to go "prepared" with some knowledge....

Or, since you're still under warranty, take it in to get checked- just a thought Mark W.

k im having the same issue with my 08 Wrangler JK X, no mods, a little offroading. it only does it when it's been drivin for more than a half hour nice and warm, sitting idle in nuetral foot weight on peddle is how it started, also while moving in first gear idle speed foot weight on peddle you get the ticking. so both in gear and neutral same noise. now that it has gone about 3-4 weeks after started now it's doing it with out the clutch peddle being touched both in nuetral and in gear. most of the clutch has been replaced be dealer TWICE, but after about 3-4 weeks after getting it back it starts the process over again.

replaced :
flywheel
release bearing
spring kit
disk
and some others cant remember

the dealer is stumped they have called the tech and they are being told it might be something with the engine fireing swquence or some BS like that. oh and i haven't been offroad since the first replacment was done. the dealer didn't like having to grind down the bolts on the skid plates hehehehe

PLEASE HELP

I don't know about ticking, but mine was "ringing", sort of like a high pitch squealing. It was my throw out bearing. Took some time to convince the dealer to replace it, but finally replaced it for free...no more problems.
