Howdy! Does the noise go away when the vehicle stops moving? Is this on a stock engine, transmission, transfer case? John

yeah when i stop it stops think it could be noise from the rear coming through because of the locker? i put the trans in when i put the locker in it come out of a same year rig with 63000 on the clicker that a guy on here was parting out. the trans and transfer both had water in the oil from sitting outside. i dont know what to think about it because it drives great shifts tight and only makes noise when coasting in neutral

that could be the sound of a dirt contaminated release bearing

or one that has had all the grease washed out from too many water crossings.

short term fix is drop the inspection plate off the bellhousing, and try to push some grease into the bearing.

long term fix... clutch job.

Sounds like something to do with the transfer case or the u-joints. I see you have a 5" lift. Is your pinion rotated to compensate? If not, I would expect you to go through a lot of u-joints.
