I drive an xterra, so basically the same. No SMOD.

I get a wicked shake while going uphill (steeper, the worse) around the 1st to 2nd gear range. It shakes the whole truck. Today, I engaged 4x4 high and tried it in a couple problem areas. It did not shake and the shifts up to 45mph were much smoother. The truck comes in and out of 4x4 easily. What would this tell me?

It may or may not be related to my 55mph+ shake and shake on uneven roads, but it's a starting point.

Any more info on the vehicle? Any suspension mods, aftermarket wheels? Why do you think its the transfer case?

Sounds like rear axle issue (driveshaft to springs, can't narrow it down)
It's better in 4WD because the front is pulling and not loading the rear as much.
