Well, the results are in after everything settled down and symptoms stabilized after Sunday's fun. On the trail a number of people heard the bad noises coming from my front diff, those stopped. I had no power to the front diff, now I do. I don't understand the symptoms changing but everything is fine as long as I lock my center diff, unlocked I have nothing.
Apparently I snapped the hub that holds AWD mode, in other words I blew my t-case. The good news is that I have one that I picked up last Spring when I punched a hole in my t-case not expecting my repair to last but it has.
I now need to swap my current actuator to the to be installed t-case then swap the t-case for the one that failed.
Could have been worse but I'll be disabled when it comes to the trails for a while until I get it done.
