Hey I have a 2001 dodge ram 1500 and I don't think the transfer case is stock because the shift pattern is backwards and the 4 wheel on the fly doesn't work anymore but when I am going 76 on the high way when you let off the gas it sounds like a grinding, banging noise coming from the transfer case. Does anyone have an idea as to what it could be

Ok and do you know any reason why my shift pattern is backwards and why it wont shift into 4wheel drive while moving. because when we bought the truck the guy mention it was the right transfer case for the transmission but the wrong tcase for that year.
The shift pattern now as is
How it should be

it egages fine and the cad works perfectly the tcase is a beast in 4l and 4h but do you know what model number the case is?
I just have to be completely stopped before I can shift so since its an older year that makes sense why I can shift on the fly
VSS ? Mine is leaking and I can get a 97 T case from a friend of mine for 100 in good shape if it would work in my 99. Could you change the tail shaff on the 97 and install the 99 tail shaff ? I also know he don't have the shifter on would the one in my truck work
The difference is like HeyYou stated. The VSS and shift pattern.. Not 100% sure on swapping the tail shafts. I went through like 5 tcases with the same noice you describe. Eventually they just split in half and spilled their guts out on the highway. If you replace the transfer case and still encounter issues your next step is the transmission.. Thats what mine ended up being. Guy that bought the truck had the same issue with his and there was an internal issue in the trans. Cant remember exactly what he said it was though..
well I do know when I changed the trans filter the last time there were 3 pieces in the oil pan of what looked to be a ring they were about an 1/8th inch thick and I was told they were from a band inside the transmission could that be it cause I don't even know exactly what the pieces came from
