Jeep cherokee problem with tcase or drveshaft

When i am in 4wd there is a whisling and grinding noise so i took my driveshaft off and it doesnt make the noise but when im going about 60 and let off it makes a small grinding noise below and sounds like the chain slipping. Any ideas?

Inspect the drive shaft u-joints.

A loose chain will make a rubbing noise. A really loose chain will make a popping noise under heavy loads.

Is this a 231 or a 242 T-case? (Fill out your profile or provide this kind of info every time you post)
Is it making this noise on the street or in the dirt?
And was the 60mph test done with or with out the rear drive shaft and what mode was the T-case in?
