Snap sound when putting in gear

I have a loud snap type noise when putting the Jeep in gear from Park. It sounds like a twig snapping when I shift. It doesn't do it all the time, mainly when the Jeep has been sitting and is cooled off.

My Jeep is a 16 JKU Rubicon auto. I am just out of warranty so can't go to dealership for them to look. Thinking maybe low fluid in trans..?

Any ideas/suggestions to look for would be great.

Tied to ebrake usage? Could be the shoes sticking then releasing with a slight movement.

Not the ebrake, as I rarely ever even use it. I mainly hear it in the morning when pulling out of the garage. So going from Park to Drive is when I hear the snap.

Might try to get the better half to put it from park to drive while I listen for the sound outside of the Jeep.
