Jerry Bransford I'd have it looked at if you don't want to open up the transfer case yourself. If the chain is stretched, and they can eventually stretch, it needs to be replaced.

TyJeep97 should i have that looked at or is it alright?

Jerry Bransford It's hard to diagnose sounds but I'll just toss one suggestion out that perhaps your transfer case's chain is getting loose and is occasionally slapping the side of the transfer case.

Transfer case problem

I have a rattle coming from the front of the transfer case it sounds like. I took the front driveshaft off because i thought it was a U joint and the noise stopped but without the driveshaft in the transfer case does not spin either so I think it is still the problem. I checked all the U joints on the shaft and they all seemed to be in good working order. I was searching on the forums here about the same problem but everyone elses seemed to be affected by the speed they were going or the gear they were in or one of thoes variables where mine happens all the time. It is not an very loud rattle but it is noticeable most the time while driving. When I let off the gas completely after going faster at like 45 or more there is a slight vibration almost like the U joint is going bad (i had that happen in the rear before) but other than that the jeep runs smooth. Any ideas?
