I am experiencing a small vibration and grinding sound that seems like it comes from underneath my seat. It only happens for a few seconds when I barely give it a little bit of gas goes away after a couple 100 rpms. At WOT or enough throttle to create a down shift it does not occur or crusing or coasting on happens at very ltille trottle. Based on that I would assume its the transfer case. I took it in to my mechanic that specializes in transmissions and he examined it. He checked underneath and all driveshafts and componets are tight. The transfer case oil looked brand new and was filled properly. The only thing he came up with besides having to rebuild the transfer case was to try a new set of tires. He said he had an AWD ford explorer with a similar issue and it was becasue the front tires were different in diameter then the back due to normal wear. He had this circumference gauge he used on my tires with me obseriving and my passenger rear was the smallest out of the 4 and my drivers front was the largest of all 4. The total difference was 1/2" in circumference. He is betting that this is the problem. I would just like to try a set of tires off of someones jeep that does not have this issue and go around the block and see if this eliminates the issue. If it does then I will just purchase some rear tires, if not then I know I need to have th t/c fixed.
