Uh OH!

So I am afraid that I believe my VC is going bad:/. I found this 242 transfer case on eBay will it swap into my jeep? I have a 97 5.2l v8

http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com/viewi...285&cmd=VIDESC

Also how hard is it to take out the front drive shaft for a temp fix?

you may have to swap the input shaft with the one in your 249, but it should work.

removing the front DS is easy, just a few little bolts.

4 bolts at the transfer case and 6 at the diff. Should be an 8mm wrench for all. Before you do, get the jeep up to operating temp and go do some figure 8s in a parking lot. If it sounds like it is scrubbing the tires and hopping, the VC is going bad.

Removing the front driveshaft will not have any negative effects on the jeep.

So I did some figure 8s but it doesnt hop it almost sounds like the front end has like metal stretching. It's very odd hard to explain

Try removing the front driveshaft then. If it still does it, you have another issue.
