Tranny Noise

Hey Kids:

I have a 99 TJ 2.5, 5-speed AX-5, box stock. 85K miles, gently used.

Today I noticed a tranny rattle only at the speed/RPM where I normally shift, which was in the 3000-3200 RPM range, in several gears - 1,2,3 for sure.

Not an engine noise; it's coming from under the dash area, aft of the engine.

If I shift below 3000 RPM, especially going into 3rd, it is anemic and the tranny makes what I consider to be a lugging noise. That is different, it is before I shift.

Not loud, and didn't feel anything unusual. Shifts are smooth in all gears, no clutch slippage, and I am using Royal Purple gear oil. When I changed the oil in the tranny at 81K there were no unusually large shavings on the plug, just some fine fuzzy steel filings.

Should I lose sleep? Wear and tear? Everything works fine and I know these things are noisy beasts.

Any help would be appreciated.
