transmission or transfer case?

My 1995 GC motor runs strong, but last week while driving home from work, about 70mile, I heard a sound like someone hitting the underside of jeep with a hammer. The jeep kind of slipped like a tranny slip then was all good, about a mile later done it again but was fallowed by a loud growling sound, I say loud because a buddy of mine was two car lengths behind me and heard it! All of this happened at highway speed while rolling out of the throttle and back into it. Also noticed RPM drop to about 500 when I let off of gas peddle. The week before it would dye when shifting from drive to reverse but stopped that on its own. Any help would be greatly appreciated and would also help get the wife off my butt!!!

My guess is that your transmission is due for servicing. maybe even replacing/rebuilding.

I moved this thread to the Grand Cherokee forum section where your fellow ZJ drivers can best assist.
Welcome to the forum and good luck with the jeep!
