Hello. It sounds like the transfer case and the transmission may not have been rebuilt correctly or not mounted properly. If you hear this noise every now and then, I would suspect that there is a thrust bearing that is not installed right. I have also seen small fractures in the sun shell inside of the transmission cause this. A bad u-joint can also cause this. I would definitely take it back to the shop that did the work as it should be under warranty.
