the noise in the rear end might be the clucthes locking up. they sell a synthetic stabliser that keeps them from binding up. add it to the fluid. drive it for a while then change the axle oil at the next service intervel. I think this is true for both axles. my brother had a 95 2500 4x4 that dose the same thing.

Hhopper, check fuses, your axle disconnect ain't connecting. Are you certain your t case is engaging? You getting a 4wd light? if not, yeah, I'd look into the axle disconnect, unplug and test whether or not voltage is at the plug... most lkely a fuse, I've popped mine many times, but being non-4wd season here for me, I can't remember all the associated symptoms, like what else quits when the fuse goes

Ty5.2, no fair hijacking someone elses thread... But yeah, running two different ratios will destroy the viscous damper in your t-case, or worse, as soon as you drive anywhere in 4wd.
