Transmission Trouble! need answers!

Alright so i have a 2004 wrangler tj with a 5 speed manual. Never take it offroad but i went with some buddies the other day and im pretty sure i did something bad. Now every time my jeep coasts (with or wthout brakes) it makes a small clicking sound that im almost positive is coming from the transmission maybe even my transfer case. Im not sure! But i really would like to get some answers. I did use 4-low a lot as its easier to drive offroad with. Thanks!

There are a lot of things that it could be.

Are you positive it's coming from tranny/transfer case area?

You mentioned its while coasting. If you stopped, in neutral, clutch out, do you here the tick? Clutch in?

The way I'm reading it...

A lot of things can cause a ticking sound. If you'd never really driven of road before, and for some reason were if 4 lo the whole time. Rock crawling or what idk... my guess is you weren't real nice to your clutch. If you don't hear the sound in neutral, stationary (clutch in or out) then that's not it though. It's coming from something that only turns when the wheels do.

Put your transfer case in neutral put her in gear and let it turn. No clicking sound narrows it down to something after the t-case or in the output shaft area...

You'll pretty much just have to follow the drive line down till you find it.

If you have someone to help. Put her on jackstands to get the tires off the ground. Put her in gear and let the tires turn in the air.

It could be something as minor as a stick or stone stuck somewhere and making a racket. It could be something broken.

Sorry if that's not much help, but its something you'll have to trace down to find it.
