Banging noise in 4wd

I just started having problems with my Wrangler in 4wd, (high and low) It makes a loud banging, or knocking noise whenever it's engaged and I'm moving forward, it seems to be coming from the transfer case. Any idea what this could be?

Check the u-joints on the front driveshaft - you may have lost a bolt on the saddle strap which holds the u-joint of the front driveshaft to the transfer case output. When you engage 4 wheel drive, the output shaft starts spinning and would throw the driveshaft all over the place if it's loose, making one heck of a banging sound. You wouldn't feel it in 2 wheel drive if its only the front driveshaft.
