Gearbox or tranfer case

I hope someone can help me.

I have a 2008 Wrangler unlimited recently after about an hour's drive I feel a sudden shudder on the Jeep, lost power and slow down. with accelerate it gears back and gain power.

Although it continues come ago. During acceleration when overtake in this period or on up hill it does the same . Sometime even the aircon cut out for the engine to gain power?

I had it now 3 times at a dealer and they donít seem to find the problem.

This weekend I tested the 4 WD and with a shock the vehicle does not run smooth, and its almost if it feels that something is sticky (take and release)

I know there is a problem with the planetary drive that as it warm up it expand and slowly start the engage and turn.

Hope you can help

I would post this in the JK tech section they should be able to help. Sounds kind of like an engine issue, as the t-case shouldn't effect anything in 2hi. Are you getting any codes?
