question about driving in 4wd

I have a 2001 tj wrangler, its lifted 4 inches with 33' tires. I engaged 4wd tonight for the second time (first time is when i bought it) and in 4 high if i try to make a sharp turn, and starts to buck quite a bit. Is this normal? I have had jeeps in the past but none have done this before. sorry bout the newb question, i was just curious. Also, this takes place on dry pavement when this occurs.

don't use 4wd on dry payment that is binding and its hard on your drive train. When you turn the front wheels do not travel at the same speed and when in 4wd they are locked together and trying to move at the same speed

Yeah, gotta remember our Jeeps are four-wheel drive, NOT all wheel drive which uses a different system. You should never use 4wd on dry pavement where the tires don't have any way to slip (to prevent the binding mentioned above).
