Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases, I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

The transfer case should be separate from the transmission on your model here.If it was low on fluid this can cause an extreme over heat or metal on metal contact causing this issue as well as a failure of a bearing or gear coming apart causing the case to come apart like this.You can pick up a used transfer case usually fairly cheap and have it delivered to you.One place I use is http://www.car-part.com.You can also get one below or through a dealer as well as many other places.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
