Unexplained noise on take off on my WK2 Grand Cherokee

Hi fellow Jeep Owners,
I am new to this site and would like to know if anyone has had an issue with a 'THUMP' sensation on take off in their 2011 Grand Cherokee?
On take off, just as the vehicle starts to roll, I get a 'thump' sensation accompanied with the noise, not unlike when you pass over an expansion joint on a road.
I have a friend who has experienced the same problem with his Jeep. He has even had the rear shocks changed under warranty, but alas no change.
I was told originally by the dealer that it could have been the Torque converter, as the Service Dept neglected to put the correct amount of oil in the gearbox at a service?!
It is becoming quite annoying and as I am just about out of warranty, I would like to know if anyone on this Forum has had the same issue and if there is someone who can solve the problem.
