SOURCE: 2005 Mercury Mountaineer rear end whine, how hard to fix

Before you do this you might want to try fresh gear lube. On Ford products they use a synthetic additive in the rear and not in the front 4x4 axle.
The next thing would be to determine if it is a wheel bearing or a pinion bearing. You have to pull the axles and eliminate them as the problem. You might get lucky and not need to do the pinion.
The technical part of shimming the pinion gears with replacing the pinion bearing is about the worst part of the job. You won't know about the gears until you see them. You will need extra shims on hand.
It is a moderate job for two people. If you have all the parts it can be done in a day.

the problem is the chain inside strechs, could cause case damage, it will soon break and then truck wont move, depending on how bad it is you may be able to drive a bit more, threres just alot of strain there because of it being awd, if it is noisey it doesnt have to be replaced just fixed,good luck.

SOURCE: I had a used transfer

The transfer case should not affect any of that, so if you have power to all those items (check with a multimeter) then a ground wire either did not get reconnected or got broken.

If you start your vehicle and check the voltage on whatever is easiest for you, and you have voltage, then start following back the ground circuit. If you do not have power, follow that one back.

How a bad drive shelf will act and my 2003 mercury mountaineer and its jumping like it wants to cut off

Don't quite under stand the question. Bad drive shelf? Shaft maybe? A shaft will cause vibration when going bad. But won't act like it will shut the vehicle off. If it is jumping when turning corners, it is the transfer case. Remove the front drive shaft to get rid of the jumping, until you can fix the T case. If you don't, it will destroy the front differential also.

2002 mercury mountaineer had a grinding noise when i backed up and turned the wheel to the right, I took it to the ford dealer and they said my transfer case, tie rod on one side and my brakes and bearings...

I would take it back and tell them you just spent 3k and they didn't fix it. And you dont feel it should cost you anymore for them to fix it. If it is making a noise how can they say there is nothing wrong? Could be as simple as a brake backing plate rubbing the brake rotor. It may have got bent slightly when they replaced the bearings and other parts.
