Could be broken/stressed springs on clutch disc, warped clutch plate, weak pressure plate

its did it since i've had it its not very loud and it only makes any noise in neutral. The clutch has no play and still goes in all gears smoothly with no grindage. It only has 40000 highway miles on it. Just now was going to start offroad play...

Throw out bearing, if you replace it go ahead with a full clutch kit. Could be.It may never cause you a problem from what I hear.

I am having the same problem with my 06 rubicon unlimited. My clutch started having that same noise. But recently. It never made noise in the beginning.

You are most likely just hearing the normal sounds of the transmission's input shaft and gears spinning. Stepping on the clutch disconnects the engine from the transmission so the transmission stops spinning and stops making noise. You can hear it in a Jeep because #1 it's a truck transmission thus noisier than most car transmissions, and #2 there is almost no sound insulation between the transmission and passenger compartment, just a single thin piece of carpet.

I thought it might be normal, but wasn't sure. If it was louder, or if it gets hard to shift, or clutch starts getting slack then i will be worried..

X2 on normal. That's why I was curious what year it is. I had a quiet ax15 that I replaced with a new nv3550 and was surprised how much "normal" noise it makes in Neutral.

Would the noise be so loud that you can hear the scraping noise over the engine & road noise? Would it increase in in pitch with acceleration & decrease with deceleration and would it still make a faint noise when you are rolling slow with the clutch pressed?

It doesn't make any noise while having any speed only when you first take off while turning. Honestly i'm not a full fledged mechanic but i've work on all my vehicles for years, and this has me lost. I't sounds like it is something in the rearend grinding, but only when you first take off from a stop.

bshore if your talking about the grinding sound change the rearend fluid. I changed mine about a month ago and it doesnt make a sound now. I guess the fluid was just getting to thinned out when the rearend warmed up.

My 04 rubi makes the same noise in neutral i don't think its a big deal because its not doing or making any other weirdness. Plus its prob just the all the internals spinning around because there is no sound deadening.

What about noise when you press the clutch all the way in? I seem to have some noise but don't really know if it is normal or not. If I press the clutch all the way in I hear it but while driving or in neutral it doesn't make any noise. Shifts perfectly without any noise as well.

A clutch that only makes noise when the clutch pedal has been pushed down is most often caused by a bad throwout bearing. The throwout bearing only works (spins) when you're stepping down on the clutch pedal. Unfortunately, you have to drop the transmission to get to it which would be a good time to replace the clutch while you're in there.

Thank you. How long can a bad throwout bearing last? Is it something that needs immediate attention?

Probably not "immediate" attention but it's not going to get any better. If the noise is not real bad, I'd plan on replacing it within the next month or two.
