2021 G C Laredo X 4X2 rear end noise

Bought new January 2020. 6 cyl. 7400K miles now.
Since purchase there is a noise, sounds like a clunk (one) when I come to a stop. Foot on the break, complete stop. Each time. Sounds like its coming from the rear of the car. Took everything out of the trunk area/
Dealer can't find it, since of course it will not do it for the tech. Possibly suspension area.
I just don't want to have the Jeep stop working and leave me on the highway.
Anyone else have this issue?
I like this Jeep and want to keep it, but this worries me.

Some of these transmissions clunk when coming to a stop. You can try reseting the adaptation parameters by disconnecting the battery for 5 minutes. Sometimes that helps for awhile.

I just got lost in thought. It was unfamiliar territory;

It has 7,400,000 miles on it??? No wonder something is clunking.

Anyhow, maybe have a family member or someone else drive it while you sit in the cargo area and try to pinpoint where the clunk is coming from. Sometimes a noise may sound like it is coming from one spot when you're behind the wheel but a totally different area when you're sitting somewhere else.

Sorry, should have been 7,400 {hundred} miles.
Could not find an EDIT tab to change it. You wouldn't happen to know where it is, would you?

I've already done the laying in the back, with the rear seats folded down, on the floor, listening.
Didn't work. Rode 10 miles this way. Had the person do fast stops and take quick turns.

You won't be able to edit posts until you are out of the probationary period. Its an anti spam thing.

A light thud or bump when coming to a stop on a WK2 still covered by warranty is nearly always transmission related (harsh shift) or something loose in the cargo area or spare tire well. ELSD can also do this but the Laredo won't be equipped with ELSD. You also don't have a transfer case, which can also be the source of bumps. Its rare for cradle or suspension bolts or lug nuts to be loose from the factory. It can happen but those always seem to be easily demonstrated.

There are several threads in the WK2 Model forum on the topic : https://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f309/

Unless you can demonstrate the bump to the tech staff, they will likely not be able to resolve the bump, unless there is a software update or they find low fluid. You do have warranty coverage for 36 month or 36,000 miles. If you can't reliably reproduce the bump, I've not heard of one stranding you.
