clunk noise when switching gear from P to R

Hello
I have a small problem.
When my jeep is parked on the hill and I switch gear from Drive to Reverse I hear a strange loud clunk noise.
It happens also from time to time in flat surface.
Only from P to R gear.

Is it something to worry about? Or is it a typical symptom?

Here you can hear it. One of the links below should work fine:

Thanks

If you are parking on a slant, you are putting a lot of pressure on the parking pin or pawl, which can effectively break. I would put in neutral with foot on break and apply the ebrake before going into park. When leaving keep your foot on break and you should have a much smoother shift into reverse or drive.

Hard to tell exactly whats happening by the video but it may be damaged already. I am assuming you dont hear it into any other gear once out of park?

I only hear it only from P to R. Nothing else.
I have tried also to use handbrake before I switch to Park. But the effect is the same. Loud clunk noise when switching from P to R

most likely is nothing. Has the jep been serviced much? by now the difs the tcase that trans should all have been changed fluides. check drive shaft for play at the Rezappa and U joints. looking for "slack". my money says this is nothing.

Any auto can do this and even on flat there may be enough slack to induce wrap. depending on the the direction of the slack. This is why i would be looking at other places for slack. a dry dif, bad rezaapas or U joints. Or its just slack. you were in D stopped. Now you go to R there is more slack going that way then there would be forward.

As well the E brake on a JK even new has little holding power. Larger the tire the less that thing works. just to small of a shoe. heck my 47 only had one e brake at the T case and it held BETTER and those were total junk too.........
