    Yes...4WD is not made for sharp turning/tight maneuvering or driving on pavement/normal traction situations. The drivelines bind at the transfer case because of the need for different wheels speeds in a cornering situation.

    Are you on dirt or pavement when it does that? DO NOT ENGAGE 4wd on pavement.

    We have "part-time" 4wd. You could engage 4wd on pavement (i wouldn't recommend doing it though) but the minute you make a sharp turn your going to bind things up and do possible damage. The wheels need slippage. Read the links below...
