    That's a matter of conjecture.

    To begin with, Ford never called them's an enthusiasts term that originally was coined for 1973/77 F250 4WD's.

    1977: Before serial number Y20,001, which some people call 1977.5's, though Ford never did.

    However, the 1967/72 F250 4WD's have the same stance, so some people call them High Boys.

    I might place the case into neutral and engage the trans. This will isolate the problem down to the input of the case or the output of the trans.
    Next, the 360 / 390 dilema. Well since the 390 was not available, in the 4x4, it is probably a 360. You will have to verify the stroke to determine which engine it is. You can do this by removing a spark plug and run the engine to bottom dead center. Then insert a wire (stiff) into the spark plug hole noting how far the wire goes into the hole and reaches the top of the piston. Then turn the motor to top dead center and take another measurement. The difference in the wire length before it reaches the top of the piston will be the overall stroke. This is a rough way to measure, but you are looking for a measurement of around 3.5 inches. This would indicate a 360. If the wire measures 3.75 inches (3.78) then you have a 390. Unlesss omeone changed the engine, you will have a 360.

    Yes, you have a 3 inch body lift. that is an aftermarket lift.

    Which transmission do you have? You have a divorced case so checking the bearings is easy. You have to remove the driveshafts. You can remove one at a time, and then remove the yokes. This will require alarge socket and an impact. They can be done by hand but air tools really help here. Once you remove the yoke, you will then remove the seal and bearing retainer. There are only 4 bolts holding each one on. This is the aluminum housing that retains the seal itself. Now, once removed, you cah wiggle the shaft and if the t-case is in neutral, they can be turned by hand to inspect for any damage. You will look at the bearing for any signs of wear. The one I would probably look at forst is the input. Pay special attention the the oiling hole on the backside of the seal retainer. There is a oil hole in the case, and this has to correspond with the oil hole in the retainer, or the bearing will starve and go dry. It is entirely possible to remove these while the case is still n the truck.

    This could be a couple of things. Is the noise speed related, and have you tried to engage 4wd? How about low range?
    Is this a divorced trasnfer case? If it is divorced, then make sure that you dont just have a bad u-joint on the intermediate shaft.
    You could have a bad bearing somewhere, but the thing will have to come apart to verify.
    Now, has the case ever been apart and is this a 205 case or a 203? The 203 could have a real problem if gear oil was used, and if this is the case, it is probable that the gear oil was too think to oil the bearings and the case is shot. This could also be the chain.

    Help me to help you by giving me a little info, and describe the problem with a little more detail.
    try all of the gears, and range selections.
