Auto trans shifting

Hey guys ive noticed with my AT. Whenever i shift to reverse, drive and park that it clunks pretty bad. Could it be a bad transfer case? Any help would be great thanks

Most generally a clunking noise when chanting drive direction is a bad u joint, I would start with carefully looking at the u joints for sloppy before thinking it's internal

There are a million ways to build a Jeep, pick one and do it - you bought a canvas, not a painting!

Do you know for sure that the clunking noise is coming from your transfer case? Because, it sounds to me like it could be your u-joint or the backlash in your rear diff.

Hope that helps.

My 98 has always done this, as well as my friends XJ. A lot of people on this forum have the same noise

Mine only does it when I'm parked on a hill and I've yet to have any issues with anything, I think it's just something that happens.
