JKUR Manual - 4-Low Noise?

I took my JKUR offroad for really the first time every where I needed 4-low and lockers. I noticed a lot of chatter (I describe it as lash) when in 4-low. Keep in mind I do have the 6-speed manual.

Is this normal? It is somewhat annoying but if normal I am OK with it.

Thanks all!

I'm trying to figure out the sound you are describing. My JKURHR manual does make a "clacking" sound when the tension on the drive train is lessened.

Is the sound made in turns, going on and off the throttle, climbing or decent?

it is normal. I have had 3 rubicons 14, 16 and 18 and in 4lo the transfer case clacks it is the chain. The guys I wheel with all have the same click click in 4lo.

It is when there is little to no tension (little to no throttle) on the drivetrain.

Is there any adjustment to the chain tension?

Does it only do it with 6 speeds? If so why not the auto?

I believe it's only with the manual trans... I thought about naming my Jeep
"The Clacker" because of it. It's normal.
