Check locally. Put up a wanted AD here or search craigslist. Probably can be had for $100-$150.

They aren't hard to rebuild. Probably the hardest part is going to be getting the shift collars/forks and linkage back in when you're done. Kind of a PITA but not too bad. It'd probably save you a bit of coin too.

Pulled transfer case- it had a bad seal but all else looked fine. Re-installed it after the new seal and still made the same noise. Pulled the rear drive cover and walla.... theres my problem... its ugly.. I will post some pics and get you fellow members insight.

if you google "rebuilt transfer cases" several sites come up and they are all in the same price range. to get a professionally rebuilt transfer case, you are looking at anywhere from $600-$800, whereas the rebuild kits go for <$200.

Well I am going to do away with the 4wd.. yep-- doing away with it..

I use this Jeep on the highway- not climbing... rock crawler- whatever.. - just HW.

It currently has a .411 gear in it- I am going to change it to a .456. This will allow me to use 5th gear again on the highway and get more top end and better MPG.

Now since the front will still be the .411- if it ever did get put in 4WD- it would do some damage. I figure I will switch out the front later. But for right now- no front driveshaft and she will stay on the road!
