Just like any older jeep or vehicle for that matter, the body squeeks so on and so forth and this isnt just a normal squeek. I managed to get high centered on a tree a couple weeks ago and since then, I cant engange 4L to save the life of me. I can get it in 2H and 4H just fine. Every once in a while I have to get under it and push the 4x4 lever back into the bracket next to the transfer case. The noise has increasingly gotten louder but it sounds like a Squirl chirping really fast when I speed up. I only notice it in 1st through high 3rd. 4th and 5th dont make a sound but I cant really hear anything with the doors and top off at that speed
The chirps seem to be louder and further apart at slower RPMs. Im not sure exactly where the noise is coming from, but when i take it out of gear the noise stops no matter how fast im going. There is a rubber boot that got stripped off the front drive shaft when i landed on the tree which exposed some blue material on the end of it. Not sure if its suppose to be bared and or posibly it got pushed backwards?? any ideas would be awesome.
