Ticking sound and rough vibrations.

I own a 2003 Grand Cherokee Laredo and I have a bit of a problem.

I hear a ticking sound whenever the car is moving. It's at its loudest when I'm moving between the speeds of 0-15. It seems to be coming from the front differential in 2wd. But when i switch to full time 4wd it seems to quiet down, if not, makes it completely silent. I'm not sure if I'm switching back into 2wd wrong or something, but it seems to happen right after I get done off-roading (nothing too major). Could someone please tell me what the problem is/how I can fix it/how to switch through the 4wd systems correctly?

Also, when I'm traveling at highway speeds (50-70mph) my car vibrates a lot, almost violently. I'm not sure if it's related to the clicking sound, so that's why I mentioned it in the same post.

Can someone please help me. Any and all feedback would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Re: Ticking sound and rough vibrations.

Welcome to the garage.
I would check for play in the front propeller shaft joints and check the fluid levels in the forward differential and T-case. Also check the drive shaft CV joints boots.
For the vibrations i would let the front wheels balanced and the tire pressures checked.
