Wobble in 4WD

Okay so I've got a 2000 tj. 48k on it. So my problem is when I put it into 4wd, either low or high, when I'm going somewhat slow enough to turn the wheel all the way to right or left, it wobbles or jars back ad forth. It's almost a wobble like I've got a bent rim or something. Any ideas on what this could be ? Thnks in advance

First thing, are you on a soft surface (dirt road) ?

No i only notice when I'm on pavement. Not when I'm in mud or offloading

That's your problem. Don't ever engage 4wd on pavement. What you feel is "crow hop", caused by the front differential not being able to slip during a turn.

Both wheels are trying to turn at the same speed and when you are turning on hard surface, they can't. That would explain why it doesn't do it in the mud or dirt.

Edit: I knew I was typing too slow.

Excellent! I thought it might be okay but just finally wanted to make sure.
