Thump/Slip when pulling away?!

Anyone have any issue with this? There is a light thump almost like something is slipping (like driveline wrap almost) when I pull away from a stop, and you can feel a little "thump". It's a 13 Limited 5.7 QTII, 20's. I don't drive it much, it's the wife's, and she said she notices it more when she turns left from a dead stop, but it does it going straight too. I've noticed if you stomp on it, I don't seem to notice it, but it could just be engine noise covering it.
If I pull away real easy it doesn't seem to do it, but if you just drive normal not trying to make the noise, or paying attention to the noise, it does it almost without fail every time. It makes me a little pissed cuz we've only had it since September, and she said it's been doing it a while, 2-3 months, and I'm willing to bet if I go to the dealer, they won't be able to "reproduce" the noise. It also does it with our winter wheel/tire set up too 255/70/18, so I don't think that comes in to play.
Any thoughts? Should I just take to dealer, see what they say, and if I don't get an answer I like, keep taking it back? Beat on it till something does break?! I could talk to my company's fleet rep and push the issue. Maybe it's a good excuse to get a new '14 Overland CRD
Much appreciated.

Re: Thump/Slip when pulling away?!

The thump has been commonly reported for a couple years, not much you can do about it. Mine does it mostly on left turns up hill. I hear its an artifact of how the traction controls work.

You may want to look at this thread for more discussion:

Re: Thump/Slip when pulling away?!

My wife's does this, she has the 225mm rear end. I had them look at it after we bought it and it's not a problem so no problem I guess.

Re: Thump/Slip when pulling away?!

I've been working out of town for a while and just drove it for the first time in a while last night, seemed to do it all the time, getting irritated with it, and it's not as "soft" of a thump it used to be

Re: Thump/Slip when pulling away?!

Well...this was easy to find. My 2013 Overland sure has this issue. This is the 4WD V6, for the record. As an anomaly, I can live with it, but have to think that clunking isn't good for SOME part under there someplace. I suppose it needs to be documented with the dealer. Perhaps, an extended warranty for those exhibiting the problem is in order?

Doubt it, but just switch it of in the EVIC and you will know ;-)

Re: Thump/Slip when pulling away?!

I'll give it a go but if its a common problem then its probably not that, I'll keep my fingers crossed it dosn't turn into something more.
