I need some advice....how hard is it to overhaul a transfer case?
ok this my crazy idea. My transfer case makes funny noises. I brang it to the dealership and had a tech listen to it and he said that i probably have some shot bearings or something in the case but there is no way of telling without doing the work which would cost more then my jeep is worth. 4wd.com sells a overhaul rebuild kit that includes bearings, seals, shift pads and rtv seaant for $119.99. How hard of a project is this to take on? Ive never taken on such a project. Can anyone give me some advice? What kind of tools will I need to get by? Can I get the transfer case off the jeep in my driveay without a lift?

Yes to all questions. You can easily remove the t-case in a driveway or garage in an 1 hour or 2 depending on stuck or broken bolts. Just make sure you use 2 people or a floor jack to drop it down, it's fairly heavy and awkward. Once out spliting the case is very simple. I have taken apart both ends of the case to replace the input shaft and did an SYE and I am by no means a mechanic. I would suggest getting an fsm for diagrams and proper torque specs. As far as tools a few sockets/wrench, few small screw drivers, BFH, torque wrench and some rtv.
