Sound while shifting into 4WD low

I have noticed my 2014 WK2 makes a pop/clunk type sound when it shifts into 4WD low while rolling in neutral. I presume this is just the t-case engaging. For reference, all my testing has been done on loose surfaces while coasting in a straight line. Haven't observed any similar sound when shifting into 4LO while stopped.

I haven't noticed any trouble while driving in 4LO. I imagine this is a normal condition, but the owner's manual didn't mention it, and I didn't find any references to this while searching the forum so I thought I'd ask.

Sounds normal to me.
