Clunk noise when releasing gas pedal

I have a 2013 jku sahara with about 37k miles. It is an automatic, I've start to notice a clunk from underneath the jeep when I accelerate and then let my for off the gas. It sounds as if it were switching into the necessary gear but it clunks.

I drove my friend's 2013 jku and there is no clunk.

I've looked around on the forum but I can't seem to find if anyone found a solution.

It gets annoying especially in traffic when I am constantly giving it gas and letting off the gas and braking.

It is a single clunk but it happens almost every time I let off the gas pedal.

Driveline slack? Bad U-Joint? A little smurf hitting a hammer against the bottom of my jeep? Ghosts? Donald Trump? I'm desperate ulling hair:

I'd start with checking the driveshafts if it's happening with acceleration
