Welcome to the forum. What year is your Jimny and is it automatic or manual?

It could be the chain in the transfer box being a little slack. It's a wild internet guess without hearing it though.

How many miles on it?

When did the transfer box last have an oil change?

If you look in the Jimny information section in the top banner of the page you will find the wiki section with all the relevant information on oil selection.

Try an oil change and also check the gearbox/rear engine mount. I had some crazy noise from mine that turned out to be the mount. Though in my case it was apparent on acceleration
