    I'll admit I'm new to 4X4s so if this is normal let me know:

    If I'm at a stand still and I'm in 4X4H and I turn the wheels almost or all the way and then go forward it feels like I have the ebrake half on. It feels like there is a lot of resistance. Is this normal?

    I have a 6 speed manual Double Cab if this makes any difference. Also, I haven't tried it in 4Lo yet to see if it does the same thing.

    Are you doing this on pavement? If so DON'T


    This has been covered 1,000,000,000 X

    Your axles are all spinning at different rates when turning. In 4x4 your front and rear driveshaft are locked together and spinning at the same rate while each wheel is spinning at a different rate. Your wheels need to be able to slip/spin which is why you should only use 4x4 in offroad conditions. Dirt, mud, snow, ice, etc allows the wheels to slip.

    Typical for a stand still start in 4 hi or lo. I wouldn't recommend cranking the wheel to its maximum when trying to start in 4hi/lo. Get moving straight first for a little bit then turn, it will then turn much smoother.

    By the way, your avatar picture is disgusting!

    If I only had a dime for everytime I've read this in the past month or two.


    I've give you the same response as I did the others. Stop driving your truck and going read the damn manual....front to back. You're going to break your truck.

    Yes, I'm being an asshole, but had you done this, you would not be having this issue. Thereofore not being at the dealership in the future, having your transfer case replaced, and not being under warranty because you failed to read the manual and operate your vehicle correctly.


    Heres a link to the last thread, it went on for awhile....

    This all makes sense. Thanks for the responses. And I will make sure to read the manual tonight.
