    i was driving the other day and all of a sudded my drivetrain (sounded kinda like the front end) started making this auful grinding noise like my u-joint cap just fell off or something, so i stop the truck get out, don't see anything, make sure my t-case lever is in 2wd, drive really slow the rest of the way home (few blocks) check all the "nuts and bolts" and everything looks fine cept one of my hubs is locked, don't know how long it's been like that because my hubs are always unlocked less i'm off the pavement... what do you think i broke?

    If you think it's possible you've driven quite a while with one locked hub, I'd pull the cover off the front differential and check the spider gears.
