I had to take a friend home from work today,to get to his place the roads are steep,curvy etc. So coming towards home there is a long steep grade,no traffic on it so i get on the fuel,bout half way up i am running 70ish and then something felt like it snapped and when it did is sounded like the tires chirpped,scared the sh!t out of me so i let off,runs fine,shifts fine,what the hell could it have been?

Well after you clean the brown stain from your seat I would start checking fluids and see if you can see any metal flaking. If it still shifts and drives fine I would still check it for codes, maybe it didnt throw an CEL but maybe something else that might tell you. I would also put it in 4wd and make sure that all still works fine. Man, that would scare the crap out of me too!

I was actually thinking of that since I have the quad on 135,but the truck never threw a light or ding?

It may not always be apparent that you threw a code. it may just be a minor code which doesnt pop an CEL. Thats why I said you should probably check for codes. If you were running the quad on 135 you likely slipped 5th gear.

Transfercase- noun: trans-fer-case; apparatus often found in multi-wheel drive vehicles that allows operator to transfer power from motor to front and rear wheels. Typically aids vehicle in covering inhospitable terrain. Sentence: fuck I just limped my transfercase. Alternative spelling $$$$$$$
