    Is that second movie clip from brokeback mountain? I've never seen that movie. If that is it, then the company that financed that movie needs a kick in the ass. weird shit!

    Def gana have to try this when I get home from deployment in st paul island.
    cause this is my problem

    I can shift into 4wd hi and I hear it click in but the light just keeps blinking. Then when I got to switch in into 4lo while I'm in neutral it doesn't shift and just keeps beeping. Then the only way I can get out of 4hi is to shut the truck off, then switch to 2wd then turn the truck back on and it will then click out.

    Any ideas?

    So, a big thanks to Blackhawk88. My 4wd light was flashing and not engaging. At first I thought it might have something to do with the locker mod I did. Welp, after finding this thread I remembered two weeks ago I drove through the Gila river and the water was about 3 feet deep. I took the actuator out and pulled it apart and it was full of water and the little motor had begun to rust. I cleaned it all up and soldered the two pairs of contacts, put it all back together and works like a champ. I probably won't be trying to drive through rivers after this debacle.

    ^ Great news! If you want, lay a bead of silicone around the edge of the housing before putting it back in to make it more water tight.

    Glad it worked out well for you.
    Have you checked for contaminated gear lube yet?

    I thought about that too but doesn't the front diff extend the breather up in the engine bay next to the fuse box?

    I'm not sure about that (need to check it myself), but I know the OEM rear diff breather definitely would be under 3' of water.
