ha, don't know how good my drive by diagnosis is so......if its coming from the tcase....stretched t-case chain maybe. if from the t-case you will have to open the case and inspect for a loose chain. If I'm wrong...well...what's free advice worth.


do you do a lot of rock crawling with that truck? auto t-case or manual?

you "tasted" your tires did you. Yum.


No idea what you just said. If you saying it happened after you replaced your tires....are the tires the same rolling circumference? Different size tires front to rear will cause a bind up condition in the tcase.

Why are you pulling the stub shafts? They have nothing to do with your problem.
