Replace the u-joints on the axle shafts, that's what fixed my terrible noises. It doesn't matter if they look fine on the outside, they are old.

Go spend some time around that site and keep it bookmarked, you'll learn a lot.

Front axle in 4wd sounds
I'm new to the site (a few weeks) but you have helped me already. I bought a 2004 Rubicon a couple of months ago and the forum has helped me. My question is when it's in 4WD the front axle sounds like going up the incline on a roller coaster, clak clak clak. I tdoesn't matter if the locker is locked or not and it doesn't make the noise when not in 4WD. Any help would be great. Thank you.
