i bought a 1994 jeep 4.0 5 speed yesterday. i drove fine but started to make a grinding clicking noise coming from the passengerside. so i thought maybe it was the rear brakes. replaced them after i replaced them i had it on jack stands. i put it in gear and still heard the noise. it gets worse when i press on the gas and put it in a higher gear. So i think it was coming from the transfercase. I checked the fluid there was bearly any. I put some atf fluid in and i still here it. IT also does not let me shift my transfercase into 4 wheel. Could my transfer case be shot?

sounds like you need to flush and refill the transfer with the correct syn. gear lube and adjust the shift linkage.
good news is that a transfer can be picked up for cheap and is pretty easy to replace
