New Member / Tough question

New member from Michigan.

Hey guys. I am obviously new to the group, but relatively well versed in my Jeep. It seems, not well versed enough. I will be dropping a video for you all to see on a recent problem that even the "4x4 jeep mechanics" in my area can't answer.

Any experts out there, you're help would be graciously appreciated. Thanks for having me.

I think it takes 10 or so posts before you can put stuff up

In the meantime, this is good practice: why don't you describe what the problem is?

By the time you tell us what's going on, you'll be able to embed stuff.

Rattle under Jeep after Clutch replacement and Drive shaft lube. I did a very extensive write up with a video attached that is awaiting moderation. Long story short. Rattle under the shifter after replacing the stock clutch with spec 2+ clutch kit, national TOB, new master/slave cylinders, resurfaced fly. No rattle prior to clutch replacement. They did take down the drive shafts to lube them at the time of the clutch replacement. They have done this before without any problems. This time, rattle in gears 4-6 while at low rpm.

Rattle only presents with clutch out and gas peddle depressed in gears 4, 5, and 6 at around 1500 RPM - 2000 RPM. Rattle disappears after that. If the diff is in neutral the rattle can be reproduced in gears 4-6 (6 being the loudest) 1-3 can't hear anything. I took down the sifter boot and noticed the second boot (inner boot) was torn, so that will be replaced. I suspect that will only dampen the noise. Other forums have said heat shielding, it just doesn't sound like that. Its a fairly loud rattle bordering on grinding.

It stinks like some sort alignment issue with the clutch rebuild. There was no rattle / noise / grind before I had the clutch rebuilt. I had the entire clutch done because the TOB blew on my way home about a month ago. Drove home 1 mile and parked it. Had it flat bedded to the mech. Mech is very well regarded in the area as a jeep 4x4 place. Jeep sat for 1-2 weeks while I ordered all the parts.

I took it back to them and they did a tear down to check their torque and rebuild. They found nothing. They took about 8 hours to check their work, what-ever that entails. There is no loss of power. The jeep shifts quite nice with the new clutch package. I'm stumped on what this could be.

I've read the TOB's can be quite a bear. It appears they are hit or miss with the OEM versions generally not being very good. Thing is, when the diff is in neutral and the jeep is in gear you can hear it with the clutch out. When I depress the clutch it goes away. I think this tends to make the TOB less of a cause ?

After going down that rabbit hole.....I am concerned about input shaft bearing / seals. Do any of you fellas know how much it is to replace one of these? Guesstimate.
