Hey everyone I have a 08 jk 4.5inch lift on 36's, 4.88 gears and just recently I get a grinding sound when in 4 hi. Need to get this problem fixed ASAP any ideas on what it is and what to do about it. I drive my jeep like a jeep and can't have this problem.

can you only hear it while in 4 wheel drive?

my first concern is drive shaft. but it maybe gears... ujoints....




Yeah it's only when I'm in 4 wheel drive and its coming from the front. Sounds like a grinding sound. Like a chain that's loose, kinda of pops and grinds continuously.

Probably the transfer case chain. Pull the front shaft and try engaging 4wd again. If its still grinding, then it's in the case.
