AX-5 knocking

Well after the Christmas parade my Jeep started making a knocking noise. Almost sounded like my lockright wasnt working properly. I then noticed it would make the knocking noise in every gear except 4th. It got worse and the knocking noise bogs the engine down. Also to further investigate I put the transfer case in Neutral, when I do I hear the knocking. Its was worse under a load but even in gear and with the clutch in I could hear it. Anyone got any ideads? Am i looking at a full rebuild or does this sound like it could be something else?

My ax-15 just started making a knocking sound in reverse last week but it's only in reverse. Neutral and 1st-5th are fine. I took it to a transmission guy and of coarse they can't tell you much without taking it apart but he said it sounds like it's the reverse gear slide and to just take it easy in reverse and run it till it locks up. Your problem sounds like something with the clutch or the gear cluster.
