2004 transfer case

i just recently was able to buy a 2004 jeep wrangler x series and just recently found this site. which by the way is awesome.

the other day my friend and i were out trail riding when we hit a rock. i wound up high centering the jeep.
the rock was sitting right on top of my transfer case.
i noticed that the rock also managed to severly dint the plate guarding the transfer case.

ever since then it just doesn't sound right. kind of like it's rubbing up against something. whenever i put it in reverse thats when it sounds and feels the worst.
also, I've had problems when trying to shift the gears here and there mainly with 1st and reverse.
could the reason why it's doing this be because of the dint in the plate? bearing?
I'm a new owner to jeeps and a new driver.
I'm only 17 and this was my first vehicle and i love it to death.

i can post pictures if that would help at all.

You need to look and see if the dent you mentioned is causing the skid plate to come in contact with the transfer case.
Engine, trans and transfer case sit on rubber mounts. any metal to metal contact between the case and bod or frame will result in what you are describing.

Do you have any pictures of your skid without the rock under it. Just so we can see the Dent. It looks like you hit your tranny with the rock.
