    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    I hope your not trying that on dry pavment! And every 4wd will do that its drive train bind.

    Don't use 4x4 in high traction situations. The reason it turns like crap is because the driveline is binding. If you have enough traction to bind the drive line, you shouldn't be in 4wd to begin with. Educate yourself on how 4wd works so you don't break anything.

    Mostly has to do with not having a center differential. The front and rear tires are forced to spin at the same speed, but when going around a corner they want to travel at different speeds.

    Whatever you do... when the truck won't move or starts to buck & jerk...DO NOT FORCE IT.

    Take it out of 4WD first (if you can). If you can't get it out of 4WD, you need to rock the vehicle either forward a few inches or backwards a few inches. You need to release the torque off the driveline before it will disengage.
