Rugged Ridge SYE possible issue...

Ok My project is just about complete (see build thread in sig). I installed a RR SYE several weeks ago I thought it went OK. about two weeks ago I was able to test drive the Jeep in front wheel drive only as I did not have my rear drive shaft. Everything seemed fine I only drove it around the block. I received my Tom Woods rear CV shaft and installed it last night and today I went to take it around the block and I have a "clicking sound" like something is not engaged all of the way? I checked and readjusted the Transfer case linage but it seemed OK. While moving if I put the TCase in neutral the noise appears goes away.
(I also my have a drive line angle issue have a thread in the eng and drive line section) but if that were the case would the noise go away when the Tcase is in neutral? I can pull the TCase if I have too but hoping I do not I really just want to get this back on the road... Thanks for any help, Jim

How much did you cut off of your shaft when you installed your SYE? Are your ujoints ok? Does it happen under power or by coasting?

Any video of the sound?

I don't recall exactly but it was about a 1/2 inch. If the Transfer case in in anything but N it will happen under load or while coasting. Front shaft U-joints a new (it did not happen while riding in front wheel drive with out the rear shaft) and the Rear is a brand new Tom Woods CV shaft, all appear to be in excellant condition.

Ok how was your chain? Can you recreate the noise and pinpoint it with the jeep on jackstands?
