transmission noise

Question, noticed lately, if I park on a hill, when I shift from PARK to/thru Reverse, there is a loud noise, banging when I shift. Bought my JKU new, never had any issues but had the N28 recall done a few weeks ago...I've never noticed this before, ran great, now I hear this, does not sound good at all...I'm a little irritated, already had it back because of a minor leak and missing rubber spacer after I had the recall done. Now I have this bang noise when shifting out of park! Only have 12,000 miles, take it in every 3,000 for oil changes and rotations.... Never 4-wheeled or beat the thing, what could be causing this sh--t now? Third Jeep, bought this one new to avoid issues, and I don't need problems...The N28 was the power steering line and trans. line rubbing...Supposedly replaced the power steering return line. It doesn't sound good at all when I shift from park...Only happens on a hill after shifting from Park and hit Reverse.. I tried it parking up, and also parking down a hill. On level, I don't hear it. Auto transmission,2012 JKU. Help please, any idea's before I go back to the Dealer and chew some butt! I'm getting frustrated with a $33,000 vehicle and having stupid issues!

You should post over in the JK section but try and put your E-brake on then Put It In Park . Sounds like it's popping because it has a load on the parking pin putting the E-Brake on before you put it in park will eliminate that . Just a thought .

I havent found a vehicle yet that doesnt do this. As mentioned above me, get into a habit of letting the Jeep settle on the Parking Brake before putting it in Park.

These two guys just explained exactly what the problem is. Actually it really isnt a problem... it just is the way it is. If you don't want to hear the noise then pull the e brake before you put the Jeep into park, that way your Jeeps potential energy is being held by the E Brake rather then the parking pin in the tranny.
