Auto trans gear whine

I am consideing buying a 1995 GC Laredo 4x4 ,4.0L and when roadtesting it I noticed some gear whine in first and second gear. When the trans shifted to third the whine was not audible anymore. The trans was in 2wd at the time- 4wd cannot be used until the front u-joints are replaced. Is this noise normal for a 4wd Jeep or is this a good indication of trans problems. The fluid is clean and the trans shifts properly, so if some other owners have noticed the same thing and it is inhiernt of the vehicle please put my mind at ease. Thanks.

Well ... it is really hard to say if it is OK or not if you personally do not hear that noise over the internet.
Anyway, Jeep's drivetrain is pretty much noisy and transmission's first three gears are pretty loud while you accelerate until it shifts to 4th gear, then it should goes quietly. I believe this is a normal sound for jeep's transmission, but I can be wrong.
