I got an '02 Wrangler X with a lift and "33's", and it's a stick.
About two months after I got it, it developed a "tick". I took it to my mechanic and he said he thought it was a u joint. I never made it home to put it on the rack, the transfer case ripped off the jeep.
Towed it to my friend (also a mechanic who has had several jeeps in his family).
Replaced the transfer case and front drive shaft ( he did find a bad u joint ), and thought all my troubles were gone.
About a week after getting back on/off the road, the Jeep developed another "tick", thinking that couldn't be a problem, lasted about three more weeks ( until after the 30 day warranty ) and the transfer case tore completely off the tranny!
Help!!! Whats causing this???!!!
