    I have a 94 limited 4x4. i replaced the outo hubs about 6 months ago. i installled super winch manuals in it. the problem now is when i put it in 4 wheel high it jerk violently from left to right and vise versa. iI have searched the post and can't seem to find anything on this. Just somewhere to start looking would be a great deal of help to me, thanks

    I second that. It also isn't a good idea to drive in 4X4 on dry pavement

    this was actually on snow covered pavement, it was too slick to make it up my drive in 2 wheel, so i engaged the hubs and the 4 wheel button on the dash and it was in 4 wheel drive, however it was pullong violently from left to right and vice versa

    stlc, there are some very helpful threads on here, if u have the auto hubs just do a search on it and there are some cheap ways to try to fix them including cleaning out the hubs with ATF.
