Alright , so my rear end went out, got it rebuilt, transfer case went out, got a used one. Transmission went out. Got another one and now back to transfer case. It won't hit 4wd unless it's 4 low. I put in a different 4wd module and then it was fine for a few days but now, it will make a rattle/ grind in reverse and reverse will not work half the time , if i switch to park from reverse when reverse isn't working it makes another type of sound. I'm at a loss of ideas at this moment, any advice helps please. It sounds like it's trying to engage 4wd but it won't? I'm not really sure. Im keeping it parked untill i get it fixed.
