Mine does it too. 73k on it and it doesn't seem to be anything bad. I test drove a handful and it seems that most did it. Anyone else want to chime in?

Every Jeep I've ever owned or driven has done it.

Mine just started doing this at 60,000 miles. It's due for a transmission fluid and filter change which should be next month. I'm hoping that will help calm this annoying habit down, but I doubt it. I'm going to have them look into this too since I'm about to run out of the 70,000 mile warranty and I'll report back. But, I don't expect much.
