Transfer Case questions??

I had an issue with the 4WD and I pulled the back of the transfer case off ,out of a hunch the chain was slipping.When i looked at the magnet there was some metal shavings and some really thin blue metal . I saw some other photos online and noticed a bit of blue on one of the forks.Does anybody know what that blue is and is it an issue? Everything else appears to be in good shape.

Did you ever pull it into 4wheel low while moving? Give lots of info as to what you hsve done while using it. And give what you hsve done maintance wise as well.
hope you fix it soon.

I have only owned the jeep about a month and a half it has 100k (98) thats all I know about the history. It has a clicking noise (in 2WD) that starts at about 15 and at about 30 you dont hear it any more,probably because of road noise.
When you put it into 4WD and press the gas there is a clanking, grinding noise. It almost sounds like when your riding a bycycle, you pedal and the chain slips .I raised the front and turned the wheel with a quick motion while it was in 4WD .When I did it made the same noise but when I turned the wheel in a slower motion it made the clicking noise I hear when Im driving in 2WD.
The history like I said is very limited my friend sold it to me (he gets confused by a screwdriver).

Hmmm.... Get it checked ASAP.
He might have never changed the oil in the transfer case.

The only other place I saw the blue metal(besides on the magnet in my transfer case)was a youtube video where the guy was changing the chain.Not in any part photos have I seen it.
