ok so the other day I was playing in the mud I got stuck so im trying to put it into 4 wheel drive. im pulling on the damn stick to go into 4 hi it's real hard to pull finaly It gives and i here a grrrr geat grinding apperently im pulling to far. it was not a hard grind just a light brrrrr sound. did I damage anything? just to make sure 4 lo stil worked I put it in nuetral and slipped it in 4 lo I got out of the mud. I'm worried I may have damaged somthing everything works fine its not making any unusual sounds or anythind I just need these gears to last a few more months untill I get my 4.88's

Sounds like your transfercase not diff gears. Look at your manual you actually should be moving when shifting into 4wd. I find it hard to do sometimes if im stuck and I try to switch over. Now I just put it in 4wd before i go in the hole. I would also change the fluids to make sure nothing got in through the breather tubes. Btw nice jeep!

You should be fine. Sounds like your T-case bound up some and that happens. That noise shouldn't have been in your diffs. Sometimes you need to be rolling slightly or shift trans to N to easily shift to 4 wheel. Be careful yanking hard on the Tcase shifter tho. There is a cheap plastic grommet that connects the linkage that can break easily.

Yep, I've had to rock back and forth once when trying to shift into 4 high. I think your transfer case is fine but if you're really concerned you could change the fluid and make sure it's clean.

Im not huge in the mud holes. But for my specific jeep I use 4lo in 3rd or 4th. Most use 4 hi though in order to get the wheel spin for the big holes. That being said ive had mud over my 37s with no issues. But lockers help the falkens do their job

i always used 4 hi for mud holes with my previous '08 wrangler X that was bone stock. Never has issues and it took them fine. i'd only consider 4 lo if i was fully stuck and/or it was deep and thick mud

I find greater success in 4 lo through mud. (Granted, your PentaJesus has more power and torque than I do LOL) I have gotten through mud holes in 4 lo that I had to get winched out of in 4HI.

I think it is in the little vids on the jeep website that says what you experienced is normal, and did no harm. I had a 99 Dakota 4wd that made that noise a couple of times. That Dakota was a fabulous truck. I'll always regret selling it.
