Okay, I recently bought my first jeep. Has tons of options, 33" bfg m/t. 6" lift 3 body 3 susp etc etc. Recently i've been gettin upset.
While driving on the freeway at about 65 mph, it flipped out. Tires started shaking almost like i was in 4x4 and I pulled over. Couldnt see anything. Got back in and drove fine the rest of the way back about 50 miles. Since then theres been a small clanking sound under the jeep. U joints are in good shape from what I can see. Also the 4 wheel drive shifter is completely loose. I mean no resistance what soever. I was thinkin maybe the linkage broke.. The sound only happens when I take off in first, and when I take a slow turn. Havent been on the freeway since then.
What could it be? These are some idea's i've had-but would like to isolate the problem before i start diggin-
4x4 Linkage in the transfer case-
Slip yoke eliminator-
u joints- (still possible)
Something rotational could be loose-
I'm pretty sure the problem is in the transfer case, but like i said I am very new at jeeps.
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated
