Transfer Case making noise when in 4wd

I;ve noticed whenever I have my 04 Rubicon in 4lo or 4high, every time I give it gas or let off the gas my transfer case sounds like it's moving around more then it should. I took it in to get liked at the jeep dealership garage told me that everything seemed fine. I'm just wondering if anyone else has noticed this. Is it normal or could a mount be broke?

It's likely not all the way in gear. Transfer case drops are notorius for causing the shift linkage to bind and cause this problem.

No it's in gear and stays in gear. Just when i'm climbing or crawlin up something and let off the gas or give more. Then you can hear the transfer case clicking around.

Check this page out and see if it helps.It also has about my next suggestion in another write-up on that page.If it isn't the linkage then you may want to pull the skid plate off and check your tranny mount.My T-case was moving around quite a bit .More like jumping up and down sounded like it was coming out from under the jeep and my tranny mount was busted.

When you let go of the gas it should click.. thats backlash.

Trip mentioned this page and write up to me so I checked it and I found that someone had forgot to put the torque rod back in the guide hole or pilot hole when they put the T case drop in.Mine was riding on top of the bracket instead of in the pilot hole and was causing mine to clank and clunk around although as mentioned before I also had worn out right motor mount and busted tranny mount but all its fixed and works like new now.By the way thanks Trip!!!!
