4wd Problems

Every time I shift into 4wd hi, there is a speed dependent clunk noise that comes from the front end. There seems to be a little bit of play in the drive shaft coming out of the t-case into the front diff, so I was thinking it might be the u-joint?

When in 4wd low, I get the same noise, except it occurs at a much higher rate at the same speeds as 4wd hi. Could this actually be a transfer case problem?

No u joint in the front driveshaft
Have you looked at the rear boot on the front driveshaft?
Could possibly be the issue

Good to know hah I havnt actually had a chance to really look at it, plus its been so cold and I don't have a garage or anything.

I'm not entirely sure what to look for there, but I did some searching now that I know what/were it is. Looks like the whole joint needs to be replaced if that's the problem?

You can get a repair kit thats about 65-70 bucks
hardest part is removing the driveshaft and even thats not very hard to remove
