Default Front drive shaft,Transfer case, Bearing ?????

I have massive wobble in my front drive shaft. I made a quick 39 second youtube video so you can see.

Does anyone know if this is a bearing needing to be replaced or is my whole transfer case shot. Any help would be great.

4wheel drive only shifts into 4-low Gets stuck trying shift into 2-high or 4-high, then really have to work the shifter to get back and rolling on 2 wheel drive.

Thank You

if the problem ended with the drive shaft, i would think a replacement would be your fix. since you mentioned problems with getting in and out of 4wd, my guess is transfer case and some cash involved in repair.

Have you checked to see if theres alot of movement right at the transfer case ? The video really doesn't help me with that view . Is the seal at the transfer case leaking from alot of movement ?
