    Auto hubs, by chance?

    I've never made them work; just removed them and replaced them with manuals.

    If you REALLY like the autos (blecht!) I'd take it apart again, grease it real good, and make sure you put it back in the right order.

    Make sure you figure out which it is, BEFORE you need 4WD.

    Auto hubs are notorious for not working when needed, personal experience speaking, having problems now: replace them with manuals now.
