transmission or tcase issue

I have an issue with my four wheel drive that started this past week. when i am in 4hi or 4low and let the clutch out all the way it grinds and no power to wheels but if i barely let it out and just want to creep along it is fine. also in 2 wheel drive it is 100% fine. Im thinking it is my transfer case but before i start pulling it i wanna get some second oppinions on it. thanks in advance.

I would check to see if any of the bolts that hold the t-case shifter have come loose or fallen out first. Or it is out of adjustment. Check the simple stuff first in my book.

X3 on Jeff's comment.

My t/c was slipping and it turned out that two of the three bolts that hold the shift lever to the tower were loose/missing. Sometimes it's the simple things that give us the most grief.

update: i checked the linkage and it all seems tight, but i think we are onto something. it seems my 4wd is getting stuck half way engaged or something. my 4wd light will be on while im in 2wd and if i slam the shifter up and down it will eventually fully disengage. should i worry about driving it in 2wd as it is right now or should i park it for now and walk to work? what would be causing it to not really disengage all the way.

Have you checked your fluid level?

Does your rig have any lift on it? The shifter could be hitting the cutout in the tub and not allowing it to fully engage/disengage.

i will check my fluid level. i dont see why it would be all the sudden hitting the tub since its been lifted for the 4 years ive had it and it has never had this problem. unless i have some new sag going on.
