Sounds like an output shaft bearing starting to go out? Check out the fluid level in the front differential, and transfer case. Fill if needed, then drive again. Let us know what happened

Are you on paved roads when you are in 4x4? If so, are they covered with snow, mud, or ice?

Any road conditions

Doesn't matter the road conditions still makes the noise. I can feel the vibrations in the floor.

I'm surprised you haven't split open your transfercase, leaving gears and oil all over!

4wd drive is only for when the surface is slippery, the tires have to slip a little, otherwise something breaks.

Aside from the warnings about not driving on paved dry roads, Im aware of that...I'm looking for knowledge about what is the cause of the noise and how to fix it. I live in WI, it's harder to find a dry spot of pavement than a ice or snow covered one. So far from what I've searched and heard is... 1.Replace clutch and transmission 2. Cv joint replacement.3. Output shaft bearing check fluid levels. I suppose working from cheapest solution to most expensive is the way I'll go

You don't seem to understand. The noise is because you have it in 4wd when you shouldn't. It's tearing itself to pieces! But I suppose that's what you want!

Replace everything - it'll still do it when you insist on destroying it.

Hope you have lots of money to fix it when it explodes.

Be sure to tell whoever buys it that you intentionally destroyed it.

I think what he's saying is...he's using it on ice-covered paved roads, judging by his last response...which should be allowing his tires to slip sufficiently.
