XJ Chattering Noise

I have a 00 Cherokee Sport with the command-trac transfer case. When idling or driving there is a chattering noise near the transfer case handle. When i slightly tug the handle or hold it, it stops. Is this simply from the straight 6? and just a little bit of rumble chattering the handle? Any help would be great thanks!

Hmm, mine does this too. It became even more pronounced when I flat towed my buddy's Jimmy a few hundred metres.

There's a fix for this.

Basically, there is a bushing that needs replaced/upgraded on the selector arm of the T.C.
I've been meaning to do it, for well, since I bought my jeep, just never got around to it.
IIRC, it's cheap and fairly easy to do.

A quick search will probably yield a thread or two on the subject.

I've noticed this too...a distinct chattering/high-frequency knocking just under the handle at idle/under load. (1997 w/242).
