There is (was) a 3-foot long, 3/4" diameter rod that bolted to the right (passenger) side of my transfer case, and apparently extended forward at an upward slant. It "just dropped out" when my wife was driving... of course. The rear end of the rod has a 4" long flattened section where two bolts fix it to the T-case. Where the front end of this rod was attached is a mystery. The front tip of the rod has a short right-angle finger with a 5/16" (or so) hole through it. It looks like a steering tie-rod from a smaller vehicle. When I hold it in place, it just about reaches the bolts that fasten the exhaust manifold to the main pipe. Can anybody help me identify this rod and how to replace it?
