Transfer case vibration noise

So today i was hauling a load of scrap to the yard. Not real heavy, i weighed in at just under 12k. On the way over i noticed a vibration noise coming through the shifter on the transfer case. It continued all day even unloaded. It starts at about 25 mph. It is there when u let off, there when you shift, there when your coasting...always. Unless you are under 25 mph. Any ideas? Transfer case need a rebuild?

Carrier bearing is mounted in rubber, so there will be a bit of movement. It is bad, you should be able to tell pretty easy.

Check the u-joints and make sure the nuts on the yoke are tight.

Well being a reg cab, there is no carrier bearing. I didnt realize that until i crawled under it. There is some slop in the driveline, but it doesnt seem to be in the u joints. U can turn it a bit either direction and it sounds like where the gears engage

Could still have a dry u-joint that is stiff. Seen that before. Even if it is only in one bearing cup.

If not obvious, you'll need to pull the driveshaft and turn them by hand.

I will crawl under and take a closer look tonight. Throw some grease jn there and be sure its all tight then take it for a spin. Ill check fluid levels in the transfer case as well.

Any chance this could be a transmission bearing of some kind?

Also, I should be specific in that it sounds like a fairly high frequency vibration....the closest comparison I can think of would be maybe like a cell phone vibrating

At that frequency it's almost certainly a driveshaft. Does it make a difference if the front hubs are locked or unlocked? That can narrow it down to front or rear shaft.

It may sound stupid but when in vibration starts reach over and sort of jiggle the t case lever and see if it stops. My truck has a rattle or vibration noise from that area and its just the t case linkage vibrating.

It is all in 2wd without the hubs in.

I have tried the jiggle the handle trick. There is another rattle that that fixes, but this one is a new noise, and jiggle the handle trick didn't work.
