Guess I made her mad

So as you know, my truck is getting the transfer case replaced under warranty...just waiting on the part to come in and Ford to call me. Well today on the way to work, she jerked real hard once, everything looked fine. Another half mile down the road, she jerked again and skreeched the tires, then the TCS off light came on, and the ABS light is on...neither will reset. Any ideas? Could it be related to the transfer case? Id hate to think a 59k mile truck is randomly breaking...

So here's my thinking...someone tell me if this makes sense to you.

The Transfer Case is confirmed bad. The tech said it should be alright to drive. But this morning was insane. I've been thinking about it all day and here's what I've come up with. If the transmission is supplying a certain amount of power to the transfer case...but the t-case acts up/locks up...it's going to lock up the rear axle/wheels...which would explain the hard jerk and tire screech. My thought process is...the reason the traction control kicked in is because the truck sensed the front tires turning, but the rear locked up, then free again....which messed up the TCS...shutting it off. This also caused the ABS light to come on (i believe there's a sensor inside the tcase for this as well)...does that make sense to anyone?

Set everything shy of a small missile off on the inside and your good to go, let warranty take care of the rest.
