Transfer Case Level in a bind? -- help

My questions is it seemed like I was burning the clutch out, there was that brake smell, and smoke (I let off the gas as soon as I saw that),

Also my TC Lever keeps popping out of 4HI and 4LO. I try holding the level and it still pops out...I have a TC drop, could anyone help me with a fix for this? It also gets into a bind moving the lever around.

Also, I'm running the D35 w/ 3.07 gears and 33x12.50s....I was wondering what kind of axles you people recomend. I'd also like to go to 4.10 gears and throw an ARB Air Locker on the rear. Anyone have any objections, or suggestions for improvment over what I've listed to beef up my rear end?

Did you cut the opening through your floor when you dropped it? Do you ride your clutch? Do you wheel hard in 4hi? If your answers to these questions are no,yes,yes, that is your problem.

He HAS to ride the clutch with 33's and 3.07. So now besides gears he needs a clutch.

I think sometimes us old folks at this make these upgrades sound too easy, and newbies start doing things without a proper plan or understanding of the consequences of 'waiting until later' on an aspect. Building a Jeep up to tough and strong requires a lot of things to be delt with. Doing 1/2 now and 1/2 later basically does not work. This guy is proof.
