Hi to all i have a 1987 samurai and since 2 weeks a go i have a very extrange vibration on my car , the vibration it will only on the first 2 gears ,and the transfer case shakes a lot and is getting hot if you compare with the gear box
if you put the transfer case in neutral and engage the gear box on 2 gear or other gear up like 4 the transfer case it will shake a lot and is making a cracking noise ,

Check the driveshafts...
A loose U-joint will cause shaking and popping noises that can rattle your teeth.It is also a cheaper fix, so it pays to check them first.
