My 99' GC does the same thing, even after a tranny fluid and filter change. Dealer said it's a "trademark" of that tranny. 101,000 miles and still going.

Re: 96 GC Selectrac "Klunk when going into drive and reverse, sign of problem?

I'm at about 127,000 on my 96 with the 4.0L but it is probably a little more because i haven't had the rack and pinion reset after i put on my lift kit and bigger tires. it's been in my family since about 50,000 and has done it ever since i can remember.... i wouldn't worry about it too much

Worn gear ring?

Someone had posted earlier that he took it to the dealer and said it was suspected the ring gear on the reverse was worn out and thus, the bit of freeplay in the gear made the klunk noise.

I never saw the reply back if he ever got the repairs done and how much and did it cure the problem?
