Where is the smoke coming from? Front or back or exhaust pipe? Blue smoke indicates oil burning, white smoke might indicate water/coolant. Any smell associated with the smoke.

A clearer description would help to get a better picture of what is happening.

"if I do get goin and start spinnin the front..." What does this mean?

to me it looks as if it comes from the wheel wells and it has a very weird and awful smell i dont even know how to explain it.

and what i ment by that is when i can get all 4 wheels spinnin w/o it boggin down and stalling out then it starts to smoke. its only ever done it in sand cuz the first time it did it i just didt want to chance it messin up in the mud and leavin me stranded.

My advice? Reputable mechanic.. if you don't feel you can tackle the worst case scenarios yourself.

This was not on pavement was it? You do know to never use the 4wd on a grippy surface right? If you were to try and turn on pavement in 4wd it will be very jerky and if you really gas it, you could start to smoke the tires I guess.

Haha yea i know not to use 4wd on pavement, this was on a hill with really soft like beach sand but i did try it on a more packed dirt road to see if it would still bogg down and lose power and it doesnt. so to me it is only when traction is at a minimum that it bogs and either cuts off or smokes like hell.

I'd bet on the clutch. They have a destinctive smell when they slip excessively. CV shafts would not produce smoke. A clutch would.

one question is this first time you've tried to use the 4wd in the truck ? like recent purchase or something? friend of mine bought a newer s10 and when he put in 4wd kept shuttering... found the PO had installed 4.56 gears in rear to make truck run better on street but never ponied up for front gears so it had 3 somethings up front
