That's what I was thinking too, just wanted to see if anyone had any other ideas of what it might be. Thankyou, do you have any suggestions on where to get a replacement or should I just rebuild the whole transfer case?

Didn't read the whole thread, but if this still has an axle disconnect system check it.

Chain stretch/ wear is not uncommon, but check to see if the shifter is getting full range of motion first.

The truck has the manual disconnect upgrade. Well at least when I installed it as the original owner it did. Black lever under the dash. Twist to unlock handle, pull out, twist to lock in place. Reverse that to disengage passenger side.

With the amount of use that truck has, i would rebuild.

My truck has the 1.25" chain, only discovered after bailing from a Rubicon trip at the beginning. Ordered a new chain delivered to a friends where i could swap it, and guides, and get back to the trail. Only to discover i have the wide chain not the standard 1" wide, and the nearest one i could find was at Summit racing in Ohio and not make it in time.

Crack it open and see what you need. Or if it's even the problem.

It does still have the manual disengage for the passenger side, but I dont think its engaging. I don't know if the cable snapped or what's going on, I need to crack it open to see what's going on and why it's not engaging. And thankyou so much. I probably would've made the same mistake in getting the wrong chain. I was planning on going through the tcase anyways. I figured it could use at the very least a checkup. Any ideas on good brands to go with for a rebuild kit? Or should I just go through it, find what needs replaced?
