Default Transfer case locking up

Well I was driving to work on a local highway going abt 55-60 mph and out of nowhere the car makes a horrible noise and comes to stop pretty quickly. So I am guessing my transfercase locked up or something? The reacall has been done already so idk. Anything like this happen to anyone.

could be your t-case. also drain your trans fluid to see how it looks. chances are something seized up in one of those two things

More than likely t-case. Like Eric said, see what your fluid looks like.

When did you last change it?

I used synthetic and pretty much filled it till it poured out of the check plug. I have done this several times to my other dsm's so I know thats ok. I got the car towed to my work so I'll get to check the t/c and rear fluid and condition.
