It has 26k but haven't changed diff fluids yet.. The drive
home was fine so I'm guessing it's only in 4wheel drive. Haven't
taken it somewhere yet to test it in the open. Any thoughts??
Trying to figure out what is going on.
The one prank on my Jeep this summer that I give the person credit for was taking a short length of rubber hose and duct-taping it to one of the driveshafts so that whenever I moved the Jeep it would whack against the floorboards. If it's doing it with the movement of the Jeep, then it's obviously something to do with one of the rotating parts (axles, wheels, drivehsafts, etc.). I'd visually check everything in the front end before you start taking stuff apart.

Pull it out from under the carport, washed it, vacuumed the floor, then parked it back under the carport.
Sold it, I have no cool toys at the moment....just give me some time though! The following photos are of what used to be. PHOTOS RIGHT AFTER PURCHASE

We got surprised by rain at the soccer fields tonight, too. The safari rack didn't stop much of it!

Changed the oil and thought about going to get plugs and fluids for the rest of the tune up. Then I went to the bar with my roommate for dinner and $1.00 mixed drinks instead...

Technically, I pulled the transmission and transfer case Sunday but I got them up on the workbench and broke 'em apart tonight. Maybe I'll get motivated soon to open up both cases and see how things look!
