    I have a 98 Tacoma and when i put it in 4Lo it makes some weird noises. Ive heard plenty of other 4Lo's whine but mine makes a different noise, especially in second gear. Is this a Tacoma thing or could something just be wrong with mine?

    the closest i can explain it is a mix between grinding and the sound a Honda makes when it backs up fast.
