I found a bit of play in my Transfer Case rear output shaft. Now I'm venturing into the internal guts of my KJs workings. Drained the Transfer case ( I used 30w synthetic last time) Pulled the rear shaft and boot Removed the Oil Slinger (PITA! Order a new one!) Chiseled out the seal (PITA! Order a new one!) Snap ring pliers or long thin needle nose to compress the large snap ring Expanding snap ring pliers for the smaller shaft snap ring Remove the extension housing bolts and housing with the bearing (break the seal by prying at the large Horns and tapping with a BFH. Remove the internal snap ring and tap out the bearing. (Order a new one!) I pulled the Oil Pump to get my first view of the t-case internals, then removed the rear cover at the pry points (Washers under the bolt heads). This is what my chain looks like. Is it stretched and should be replaced or is this somewhat normal? The dealer said $242 for the chain. Much cheaper on-line, BUT, I'm in an "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" mood.
