Possible transfer case issue CJ7

Hey guys, I'm going to attempt to describe my problem please bare with me I've never touched a vehicle before this so its been a lot of manual reading and googling so to say just to be able to get some of the right terminology. Also I've never worked on a vehicle but I'm more than willing to figure it out if need be. Also thanks in advance for anyone that responds to this. If you don't mind use the correct terminology even if its above me head.

Let me just go ahead and dive right into the problem. When I'm in drive and I am putting any type of load on the back tires such as going up a hill I get a popping noise. I decided to jack it up and to test the thought of it being the transfer case. So first I had the back wheels chocked and blocked and had the front up on jack stands. I put it into drive and the front wheels started spinning unfortunately the backwheels did not have enough 'gusto' to push the jeep much less attempt to climb the blocks. Shortly after I decided to put the entire jeep on blocks thinking that I had just lost my whole rear end drive. Totally not the case. I put it in drive and all 4 wheels are spinning. The only time I can hear the noise is when I'm going up a hill from a complete stop it sounds as if its just a click click click and it stops when I get to the top or get to a quicker pace (above 15 mph). Any advice/suggestions would be more than greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Unfortunately I have checked them and their not the culprit.

I parked against a wall and when I put it in neutral or reverse I could hear a squeeking from the skid plate so I'm hoping it's just the chain extremely loose.
