    X2, the bang is the tension in the front drive line releasing.

    X3!! I do this every time I shift out of 4x4 since the first time I had that "bang" 4x4 disengage. Def doesnt sound like you have an issue just operator error like the rest of us that have experienced this:rolleyes:
    Should it do it...ehh prob coulda been designed a tad different maybe, but once you figure out how to prevent it.....it doesnt matter.

    So..... turn switch to 2wd and let off Gas about half a second later. prob solved.

    If not....after several attempts at this method, maybeeeee and I doubt it.......there is a slight posibility that the front axle diff/transfer case servo(s) is slow.

    OK......I promise you, if you let off the gas too early, your prob will be the same every time. However....is this a new prob? did it just start doing this?

    I find it easier to do when stopped

    put in neutral

    select or de-select 4WD

    put back in gear.

    Also you should be putting your truck in 4WD

    about once a month, even for a short distance

    to keep everything in working order.

    i do mine on the 1st of the month ( easier for me to remember )

    The bang is from wind-up. Don't drive on dry pavement, don't switch in and out of 4-wheel while turning the wheel (e.g. going around a sharp curve or parking lot), and don't shift when putting a load on the driveshaft (e.g. going up a hill or accelerating quickly). If you just took a turn that caused wind-up, drive straight for a little bit then disengage and it shouldn't bang because the driveshaft had an opportunity to un-wind.

    However, it could be something more such as low gear oil in the transfer case...check your level too.

    I put the transmission in neutral and push the brakes quick and it pops out fine. Gotta get the tension off.

    Put the truck in N while stopped. Turn to 2wd and sit untill it click out of 4wd. Then if you must, Back up a few feet, then go

    I to have this same problem with my 08 4x4,doesn't do it all the time. Have tried all things suggested, even driving straight before disengagement, sometimes it bangs sometimes it doesn't. I have had problem from new, tech at dealer has heard the disengage prob. no tsb's the only way it doesen't bang is to stop before I disengage 4x4. By the way I'm new here and had just been reading until I saw this. Hi everyone.

    The bang I hear is very lowd, like something is going to break, then other times I'll just hear a click when disengaged

    I once had a problem where it would not come out 4x4L it just kept flashing and then beeped at me. I did have a heavy (read overloaded) bed full of fresh cut logs, I was going up a hill coming out of the woods onto the winding road and it would not come out. I tried nuetral, rev, light gas, no gas. It took a min but it was one of the longest of me life (1,000 out of extended warranty)
