      Okay I looked through all the clunking noise threads here and couldn't find what I was looking for.....

      Here's what happened. I was out tonight trying to take pictures of my stock headlight bulbs and how much they shine so I could take before and after pics (got the HID lights today!).... the pictures weren't the problem. I went to turn around on this counrty road I was on (needed it to be real dark) and my rear end went off the edge down the ditch. I was at a good 35 to 45 degree angle, and I figured "Ok I'll just put her in 4WD and get myself out, no prob, that's what I bought this for!" so I put it in 4WD Auto (this is a '95 XLT) and I put my foot on the brake to hold myself while I slowly pushed the gas, and there was ALL sorts of clunking and jerking and it really scared me. I thought maybe I was stupid and should have put it in 4WD Low, so I turned around, put myself in the same position, and put it in 4WD Low (by putting the truck in neutral with my foot on the brake) and then putting it back in gear. Same clunking and jerking, and the clunks were loud!! Can anyone tell me what's up please I'm worried about it...... thanks guys...
