Whenever I go to make a sharp turn the wheels feel like they are binding up and you can hear little noise. Whenever the Jeep is warmed up though and I go to make a sharp turn it drives like normal. I was thinking something with the T-case but since it goes away when it's warm idk. Thanks for the help.

which way are you turning when you hear the noise... CV joints are what I would look for first

C.V's tend to click when going bad and don't normally get better when warm .
when was the last time the diff and Trans case fluid was changed ?
All 3 have clutches that tend not to like poor fluid /viscocity .That's why jeep wants the diff fluid changed every 12k miles and Transfer case at 30K miles . Don't forget the friction modifier in the diffs .

I'm pretty sure it's not fluids since it started this weekend after I did a little mudding. I read somewhere about this seal or something that controls traction at the wheels and then when they go out the tend to grab when turning. That's what I'm thinking but if it went out then idk how after warming up the issue goes away.

Would an alignment maybe be the issue? I'm assuming not but the Jeep pulls a little to the right now and that is the direction it tends to have the issue on when turning.

little water in the diffs or plugged breather could have the same effect . If teh alignment was bad enough it could activate the trac controll , but it probably wouldn't go away . I would still pull the fill plugs on everything and make sure they're not diluted or dirty cost= $0 , but thats just me .
good luck

Do you have pics of the locations of the drain plugs? I'm still trying to learn everything haha sorry.

So I took it to my mechanic and he took a look at it. Since the problem doesn't happen when the vehicle is warm he couldn't replicate it. He said the only thing he heard was when he was underneath and full turn he could hear a click from the CV axle. Could this binding and minor popping sound when turning be caused by a bad CV? I trust him as I have always gone to him for mechanical issues. I left it for him overnight so that he could replicate the problem in the morning.

Turns out I had 2 seperate problems at once. My left CV shaft was shot and also a solenoid in the front diff.
