Is something wrong? Front end

Installed a hitch tonight...so i started checking around underneath. In 2wd i reached for the front drive shaft and was able to turn it a little and could hear it turning inside. Is it just play or is something wrong? I've only had it in 4wd once since picking it up and it seemed ok with no noises.


On the good side it looks like i have a d44


thanks

It's fine, there's should be some back lash in gears.

Thanks...i was a little worried cause i kept thinking i heard something from the front end. I took it to a muddy lot tonight and threw it in 4wd. Seemed pretty tight. My exhaust is hitting my new hitch though. LOL
