Definately need to put a jack under the tranny/transfer case before removing the skid plate. I would hold off on that, though. Have you checked your rear pinion nut? I know that with a drive line change (from a lift) that the pinion nut tends to loosen over time. This is the nut that holds your rear driveshaft yoke in place at the differential. You have to remove the rear d-shaft to check it. If it's tight, try to move it to see if there's play (up/down, side-side). If so, you may have a bearing or gear problem.
