3. Today it's 47 degrees out and no noise at all. This is making me fall back to my theory that there's ice in my transfer case since the outside temp is above freezing.
To make myself sound less crazy, my theory is backed by the fact there's 140k miles and a potential low fluid level in the transfer case. Is there a possibility
that over the years, some sort of condensation has built up enough to form ice inside of the transfer case where it's at a noticeable point? I'm going to change the TC fluid and ATF this week to see if it does anything. Although at this point, I'm a little hesitant in changing the ATF due to the mileage on the truck and the hype that older trannys like dirtier fluid.
