    Research research research.....

    How much does a NEW chain cost?
    How much does a USED chain cost?
    Can you install it?
    Do you have to pay someone else to install it?

    ....and compare those prices with the cost of an entirely USED t-case, and again...whatever it'll take to install it.

    Contact your local shops, your own garage (DIY with some friends)....ebay, craigslist, local junkyards, etc.

    a stretched chain is a bitch! i had one on my AWD jeep and i feel your pain. . . . i would take it apart first. you will definitely need a new chain, but i wouldn't just buy one if you don't know what the gears look like inside it. once a transfer case gets to the point where the chain is stretched, it's possible you've damaged some of the interior parts. . . a rebuilt case is the way to go in terms of money and reliability. just make sure your buying it from a trusted person.

    yeah that's the way to go man. i know when i was looking for them for my jeep they were $1100 new. so i sold it on craigslist to a guy who said he was gonna tear it apart and build some rock crawler (it was a grand cherokee :notsure:) but more power to him. . . and then i bought a taco :D
