Clicking when shifting.

All the manual transmissions I have ever had were in sports cars, plus i drove a manual 24ft box truck a couple times. I'm not sure if what I am feeling and hearing is normal or not. When I shift, there is a distinct clicking that could maybe be described as a tapping sound. There is an overall clunkiness to the shifts, that I kind of expected, but now hearing the clicking I'm concerned the clunkiness is perhaps a little more nefarious as well. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

The Jeep is an 05 Rubicon swb 6-speed. Just bought it with 53000 miles.

Does it only happen when the clutch pedal is depressed? Right off I'm thinking pilot bushing...

Okay so I found a few online, they seem to be pretty inexpensive. Is this something I can do my being somewhat mechanically savvy? What caused this to go? Is this a bad sign considering I just bought this Jeep with 53,ooo

Is it appropriate for me to bump this to try and get more opinions and advice?

Typically that would be a throw out bearing.
