4lo problems
Last week I got my yj stuck in some mud, and in my frantic attempts to get out, I think I did some damage to my 4lo. Today I put all 4 wheels in the air to see how they spun in 4wd. They operated fine in regular 4wd but in 4lo, the left front wheel has some issues turning. It seems like it's moving sluggishly, I have to put more gas into it to get it spinning the same speed as the other 3 wheels. It also slows down faster. Any thoughts?

Unless you have a locker sounds normal. Stock you have an open differential so really only 50 50 to each wheel until resistance is encountered. You may have a brake dragging a little.

I don't have lockers. But I guess it seemed odd to me that the right front tire was spinnin exactly as the rear tires were, only the left front was sluggish
