Good morning,

Does your truck have the manual shift transfer case or the push button electronic shift?

It has the push button electronic shift
Transmission Mechanic: Jared D, ASE Master Mechanic replied 7 months ago

So on the electronic shift model you can get noise from the encoder motor (on the transfer case) or the front differential, or the front driveshaft. Have you noticed any vibrations when in 4wd or any grumbling noises?

Does the dash show service 4wd or anything?
