    When I'm driving along at 55 miles an hour....all of the sudden I will hear a lound noise or clunk. It almost sounds and feels like I hit a dry spot and got traction. It just dosen't seem right.

    I have a 2005 Std Cab 4cyl with a manual 5 speed.

    Any thoughts or advice?

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    I'm no expert on 4x4's, but I wonder if your drive train is binding up? Maybe your transfer case? And the reason why I say this is because you shouldn't drive with 4WD engaged on the road (during normal driving conditions), or at least don't turn sharply and go fast.
    Are you on dry road when you hear this?

    It'll make that sound when you disengage it at speed if that's what you're talking about, but just having it on and driving, no that's new to me.
