transfer case sitting on skid plate. HELP
« on: September 10, 2011, 06:15:59 PM »
i've developed a thumping under my driver seat which is worse when in reverse or downshifting to brake.
I just had the chance to have it on a lift to take a look & the transfer case is sitting on the skidplate.
looking up into there, i could not tell where the mounts were or what would have come undone.
are there mounting brackets or does the transfer case bolt directly to the transmission?
am i looking at a bad transmission mount or engine mount?
it is fine when driving down a smooth road but bumps around on rougher terrain.
any help is appreciated. i can't seem to find my chilton's manual

x2....definatly sounds like a bad trans mount....when the skid plate is removed you can see it pretty easy...on the plus side its an easy fix.
