Default Strange "clunk" when starting from a stop

Has anyone noticed a muffled "clunk" that seems to come from the rear drivetrain when starting from a stop in their RA? I never noticed it before, so I thought I'd see if anyone else has.

Mine does it too. Its either the clutch plates or gears or AWD sys. It does it when you start it up too.

Cool, nice to know I'm not alone. I figured it was the tranny doing a self-check when first starting up, but the clunk after you've been moving, then stop and start again was different. At least I know not to worry too much. Thanks.

I hear it too and after much deliberation, I want to say it's the gears engaging in the diff...I hope.

I think they all do it because R&T commented on it in their comparo a while back, but it does sound expensive.
