chatter noise
My jeep has a chatter when i am going down the road, much like the sound of a rock inside the center cap of a wheel. mine does not have center caps, i have checked every wheel, jacked it up, put it in gear and no sound, only makes it going down the road. sound does not change in 4wd or 2wd. , a mechanic friend of mine seems to think it is the transfer case, but i just find it hard to believe that is the source. Anyone else have any chatter issues.

Did someone tie a zip tie around your driveshaft?
