One other thing that I saw quite abit of in the dealer I used to work at was the small bearing the the tc shifter rides on would fail and then take out the encoder motor.

Seems like you have discovered the cause to your problem. I had a similar issue on my Yukon, just like you described, and it turned out to be the front u-joints.

u joints on the driveshaft or the axleshaft CV's?
I did have to replace one ujoint on the front driveshaft, I think that is where the vibes might have been coming from.

Well the cv shafts needed changing at the same time (they were creaking and popping) but the vibe was still there after I changed them and it was the u-joints on the front driveshaft.

I've been lucky that nothing else has happened with the front end, especially as it was basically in auto 4wd all winter. That's 6 months, almost, of being in and out several times a day, in temps down to -51 and near constant below zero weather. The oil cooler lines didn't fare so well this winter, now they're leaking

I think the cooler lines are pretty common leakers...mine leaves a few drops when it sits for an hour or more.

Yeah the guys at the shop say they just bypass/remove them on rigs up here, most of the year the oil doesn't need to be cooled. But I'm heading south again so I'm going to replace them here soon, I don't like leaking fluids.
