The work truck package on the 2003-2007 had an indicator light in the dash cluster. These are the trucks with the 4x4 shifter on the floor.

Always irritates me that I can see the damn spot in the cluster where the light goes in my current SLE package but because it's pushbutton they decided it didn't need the bulb in the cluster.

Don't know how many times I've forgotten to knock it out of 4x4 because the little orange light on the pushbutton doesn't do jack...Might explain my transfer case rebuild...

At 70 mph, the front differential should be well lubed. Owned 4 wheel drives for almost 40 years and was told to put them in 4 wheel at least once a month to keep things lubricated. Bent a rear driveshaft once and had to remove it to drive 150 miles in “front wheel drive” no issues except it’s probably harder on the smaller front shaft. I wouldn’t worry about it!

A transfer case will put up with a lot. I just rebuilt one in an older Dodge. It was dry as a bone inside. He said that the tranny was rebuilt about 3 years ago but he's never done anything with the t-case. It's all direct-connect on there, so if it's working, it's working. There aren't any clutches to burn up or anything like that. If all four tires are the same size, then there was very little strain and stress on components. Drive on. Just remember to change the oil in the transfer case as it probably isn't sharing fluid with the transmission.
