I think it might be the synchronizing gear??? If I shift at 2500 hundred rmps I have no clunk in any gear till I hit 5th then it clunks. Any other rpm it clunks every gear.

My money is on the torque arm stud, missing, damaged or loose.

Torque arm stud lives right next to the transmission mount, driver's side and bolts through the skid plate. You should see the bottom nut under the skid next to the 2 tranny mount nuts. Stabilizes the drivetrain when it tries to twist (torque) under acceleration. Drivetrain won't twist as much if you're already up to speed....

Seen here at the top center of the display picture. The 2 rubber bushings and nuts go with it.

You may be able to find just the stud itself.


Oh, and try to fill out your profile as much as you can...we're flying blind here. You do have a Wrangler, right?

FWIW the torque arm stud can be an easy fix with just hardware store stuff. Mine's loose about 1/4 inch and I get a nice thunk every time I take off. It'll tear up the trans mount if I don't tighten it back down. The mount itself is just a $20 piece of rubber with a couple bolts in it. Welcome to the forum, you just found one of the best jeep sites anywhere!

Those are 2 of the largest and most popular. They have literally everything clear back to the WW2 jeeps.
