could a wheel bearing cause this vibration as well? the car seems to make a noise with the vibration as well. it does however come and go which is weird..
The transfer case holds very little oil (Bentley manual says 0.16 qt), if it's leaking don't put it off. Jack up the car and try to rock the suspect wheel, if there is play it's the wheel bearing. I had similar vibration symptoms and it was the FCAB's.
