Hello everyone, I need some help. I have 95 YJ with a 2.5L, Automatic, 4" lift, 130,000 miles.
I was wheelin last night and I started to hear a very loud Popping noise coming from my transfer case. It only happens when in 4 wheel drive and under heavy torque. Mainly going up steep hills with some off camber. To me, it sounds like a bearing chunking. I can actually FEEL the noise when it makes it. Almost like the tire is throwing a rock up against the tranmission, over and over again.
All the mounts seem to be fine. I don't "feel" it in the steering, I can feel it on the floor boards.
My buddy said he thinks its the chain slipping on the inside of the transfer case.
