when in 4wd High...

When I put it in 4wd drive and make more than half a turn of the steering wheel, the steering wheel jerks and wants to go back to it's old position. It only does this in 4wd. In 2wd its fine. I have stock tires and wheels so I'm not sure what the problem is.

If you're on a hard surface that's normal. You should feel the reaction in the steering wheel from the 4x4 being engaged. System is not built to be run in four wheel drive on hard surfaces, it's rough on the front end. Slick or loose conditions where extra traction is needed.

good question. I am on pavement when I put it in 4wd. I switch it just before I'm about to use all 4 wheels... So that's why it jerks?
