Rubicon rear differential

I recently bought a 2003 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon and took it out on some trails for the first time last weekend. The Jeep did great! The only challenging section was when I was coming up a fairly steep, rocky trail with some good size rocks and loose gravel. I had it in 4L and didn't have any problems, but every once in a while a tire would hit some of the loose gravel and slip, then I would hear a clank/clink sound. Is that the rear limited slip? It it normal to hear this sound? I locked in the rear locker and it quit making the sound and didn't slip as often, although I did hear the sound one more time, even after locking in the rear locker. Does the front axle also have the same limited slip differential as the rear?

Rubicons only have a limited slip differential in the rear.
