I am getting a clunking noise from what sounds like the transmission when in gear and under power. I can depress the clutch and the noise will go away. More RPM's, it turns into more of a howl. Hard to tell exactly how long it has been doing it as I have the top of all summer. I did notice with the top off, but it is more pronounced now with the top and doors on.

04 5 speed. 4" lift. Probably 5000 miles on re gear and new adams driveshafts. Front diff is warm to touch after a hour drive, but not near as warm as the rear which leads me to believe it is not a diff bearing.

Its the exact opposite of a failing throw out bearing so have ruled that out. Not sure about the input shaft bearing, it makes no noise while in nuetral. No matter the clutch posistion.

I had a failed trans mount, would bump the body at low speed and press against under more power and transmit normal gear noise as a howl. But 04 had the NV3550, and I've gone thru 2 of those, so I wouldn't rule it out.
