Thinking about buying a 2008 rubicon but...

So I've owned a 97 wrangler previously and sold it after starting school and driving 40 miles one way. After 4 years without a Jeep I've been looking for another and have found what I think is a great deal. A 2008 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon manual. I has a hardtop, and every option except for side curtain air bags. When I test drove the Jeep with my dad we noticed a clicking noise that was coming from the transmission that increased in speed as we acclerated. The owner of the Jeep said that it has always made that noise... and a guy that my dad works with who owns a 2007 Wrangler Rubicon manual said that the noise is not normal and is a sign of something wrong with the transmission. Any ideas on what could be wrong? Should I buy the Jeep?

If you think there's a trans problem.. I'd pass (unless it's really cheap).

^^agreed. Unless you can have a mechanic look at it or can get it for absolutely dirt cheap, I wouldn't worry about it. It definitely shouldn't "clunk"
