Well i blew my rear ujoint so i took my driveshaft out to get home in front wheel drive and it felt like it kept popping out of gear but it was just the tcase slipping or jumping teeth? I still havent done anything with it but ill probably just buy the rebuild kit and rip it apart. Currently drives fine back in 2wd
