Transfer case POP - Clunk

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.

Any ideas?

It is most likely the chain slipping on the gears in the t-case. The chain stretches over time just like a motorcycle chain does, time for a rebuild.

Never figured it out. When I put in the 5.3L I rebuilt the TC with sye. Never heard the noise again.
