    I think the only way your going to fix it is to take it to a shop have them put it on a rack and put it in gear and feel if its coming from the transmission or transfer case.

    Sorry for the delay guys, lost my internet connection, anyway, no the truck does not move, forward,backward, in gear, out of gear, just makes that horrific noise & yes its an automatic, The chain thing sounds plausible, because of the auto hub locking feature, this tells me something, but.... fuck i dont know what it tells me, but the whole noise thing sounds alot more like a chain going slack/breaking than the random chance that a dozen or more nuts bolts ,parts,etc: suddenly came loose at the same time, i just don't know enough about the newer process 4x/ with auto this & auto that, but guess I'm going to learn now, the hard way, someone mentioned that it didnt sound cheap, they're right, from what I've gathered these tranny's cost between $3k up to $4k to rebuild........ I say FUCK THAT NOISE!, x100 ...

    I've never heard anything like it before in 40 years of being around cars & trucks

    I will say that earlier in the day before it grenaded on me, it was upshifting SUPER FUCKING HARD !! like it was trying to chirp the tires going from 3rd to 4th (over drive) really weird, & then outta no where, just dumps all forward movement & a tow truck was called.... FML !!

    So if any of you have any suggestions, sing on out, this one has really got the oLdMaN stumped.....:notsure::notsure:
