I definitely notice it at 0 mph in drive and in reverse.
Does it make the noise in drive or reverse while you are sitting still or do you need to be moving? Big difference.
If it makes noise sitting still, nothing is moving in the transfer case to make noise.
If so, there is a good chance the noises caused by some thing rubbing, when in gear. Suspect a bad motor or transmission mount that is allowing the driveline to move, when in gear.
