Are you sure it's the t-case and not the front axle? Could be the ring and pinion, the ujoints on the outer axle, or the hubs themselves.

are you on dirt or pavement when this happens? the outher thing is the chain might be streched. have the axels been swaped out of another vehicle. you could have one thats 3.73 and one that is 4.11. the last thing to check is that your lockouts are actually engaging, one could be slipping. the last thing would be to check the linkage for the shifter.

My vote is for mis-matched gears front and rear. My Sub did something similar. I had thought it was running 3.73's in both ends, but it turns out the rear diff had been replaced with one running 3.42's.

I have a 1986 GMC fullsize 4x4 with a NP208 transfer case and when I hit the brakes hard the transfer case jumps into nuetral and I have to pull over and shift tranny into park then shift the transfer into 4LO then back to 2HI then the tranny back to drive everything is ok after that. When I shift the tranny into any gear when this happens I can feel it shift but not move until I shift the t-case. Is it worth rebuliding or should I change it out with the old cast iron one I have out back?

A few of my trucks have had leaking transfer case parts and its a pain to find good rebuilt assemblies. any one got any suggestions other than salvage yards?
