wansfel Try finding a patch of gravel or dirt and turning a tight circle in and out of four wheel drive. If you notice a distinct difference, you are getting 4 wheel drive. Should hop and scratch in four wheel, but not in 2 wheel.

4x4 issues

Tried out my 4x4 in a soft spot of mud, got my rears spinning (attempted it in 2 wheel first), after engaging the 4x4 high, i heard a grinding noise from the front end, put it in 4low and crept out, i dont think the front wheels are doing anything for me! Any ideas where to start?
