Just an update. I am almost positive it's just rust on my clutch. I had someone else pull out while I listened and it seems to be coming from that area. I pulled the rear cover off and everything seemed good. It's not an actual mechanical locker though, it's the lunch box spider gear replacement with the clutches in it. They stopped making them basically cause they break a lot apparently. I called the number for Eaton which owns Detroit now and got transfered a few times. The guy who I finally talked to was confused as to how I had one of these in a Jeep cause apparently they haven't made them for anything but ATVs for a while. I shoulda known that this thing was old when I bought it the instructions on installing it were on a VHS tape  :o
