2010 Loud Squeak when turning in 4WD

Good afternoon.

Today I put my Jeep into 4WD and got some nasty loud squeaking and screeching with feedback in the steering wheel. I was able to capture it on video here. Any thoughts???

You should Not be in 4wd on pavement! Especially turning sharp, that is the driveline binding up and the tires are eventually slipping.

It is for loose, low traction surfaces only like dirt, gravel, mud, snow etc.

Well this is good to hear. The issue sounds to be the operator... anyway will keep this posted as Im sure some other new Jeep owner will do this exact same thing.

Best way to learn is by doing something dumb...

Don't drive in 4WD on normal roads is for loose or slippery surfaces only.
When turning on asphalt/concrete in 4WD some drivetrain components are overloaded and might break, tires are skipping so you might hear all sorts of noises.
Try test it on sand/dirt/grass any loose surface.

No worries

The Wrangler is a "part time" 4wd, different than say a pickup that has an auto setting it a vehicle with full time 4wd.
