weird surgeing and bouncing in reverse

Hello all this is my first post on this forum but I have been reading here for awhile. Anyway I have a 95 jgc 249 awd transfer case and it has been sitting for a couple of months.So the other day I get in put it in reverse and it acts like i had the gas floored surgeing backward.So slam the brakes and it stopped and by letting off the brake very little it will go but the rear bounces up and down. I get backed up and take off and everything is fine reverse is fine but every time when I first start it it does the same thing.anyone got any ideas? The transfer case is a oem rebuild only a couple of years old and the trans was rebuilt last winter anyone ever heard of anything like this?

The only thing I can think of right off the top of my head is that your idle hasn't had time to stablize into the normal idle speed before you shift. Maybe let it run a minute before you shift into any gear. Not a bad idea anyway just to let the oil get to pumping good. Not sure if that helps...
