YJ Transfer case whinning noise

Hi Guys,
I have been on the site for awhil but this is my first post. I have a 92 YJ, When in 4x4 I have a high pitch whineing noise coming from ( I believe) the transfer case. It is loudest when excelerating or when at a steady speed. When I am off the throttle it is almost gone. I checked the fluid level it appears to be fine. I should mention when I bought the jeep I was told it had 4.11 gears in it. I am not sure if both axels were done. I can check this I think by spinning the wheels and counting the axel rotation. The jeep also has a 2" body lift. I posted a pic because I know how much we love them. Fresh from the snow in Massachusetts.

if your gears where not the same in both axles you would know! trust me. we swapped axles out of a dodge power wagon and miss counted the teeth and pow!! we crapped out a d70 ring rear and pinion. i am willing to bet it is the chain. just needs rebuilt.
