Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. Where do you have the 'play' with the transfer case?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
where driveshaft connect to transfercase.
Expert:  Toyota Service replied 1 year ago.
If you are speaking of endplay in the actual joint at the transfer case output shaft, the answer is you cannot adjust this. The endplay/looseness in the output shaft yoke is most likely due to a stretched transfer case drive chain. If the endplay is excessive, I would recommend replacement of the drive chain.

That sounds a lot more like a broken tooth at one of the drive gears for the transfer case drive chain.
Expert:  Toyota Service replied 1 year ago.
In any case, there is no external adjustment provided. You are going to have to take the t-case off and split open it to see what is going on.
