    I think that's a normal mechanical drivetrain noise. I've driven many different year manual JKR rentals in Colorado that all had less than 2000 miles on them. They all made that drivetrain clunk noise whenever I put the clutch in. I think it has to do with the fact that when in 4low the tranny is spinning 4 times faster amplifying any amount of backlash. Perfectly normal in my opinion.

    christ... you should have seen my face... first when i heard the noise repeatedly like WTF IS GOING ON!!!

    and then when i finally said f** it! took about half an hour to get the damnr eflex out of my system though hahahaha felt rediculous and actually had the groupe clap when i finally got it going (felt like an idiot hahah)

    was so stoked.... if you wanna try to sooth the nerves or reflex before, just hit a parking lot. throw her into 4low try the first and second, youll have her inching forward without giving any gas. kindof helps the reflex chill the f** out haha at least it did for the wife! On the trail the guide had me put my feet out the door haha(was going doorless so it was easier than trying to get them long legs out the window)

    sounds trivial to most jeepers but for me at least, ive driven manual cars my whole life and its second nature to use the clutch like a mad man

    Thanks for the comment Rob ... so you didn't notice the noise without the locker? Do you find it worsen with time?

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
