Fluid is full and all forward gears work. After the noise it may go in reverse for alittle while after
Jeep Mechanic: Gary, Technician replied 8 months ago

it sounds like something is failing in the transmission

if it will not act up in forward gears the rear axle should not be the issue

the adds are the low reverse bang is failing inside the transmission causing this issue

i would have a shop drop the pan and check for any debris next

the odds are the transmission will have to come out and apart to be rebuilt to correct this issue i am sorry to say
