    My friend went wheelin last montha nd he said his friend didnt properly lock one of his hubs on the other side. 4wd kjept slipping out .... and he kept putting it back in... later on he fell in some ruts and trying to get out he heard metal screech and break. And finally he got out.. on the way out one front tire locked up and wouldnt move... then he unlocked his hubs.. we testted it again and when he tried to go in 4wd w/ both locked hubs both tires locked up and wouldnt move up front.. anyone know whats wrong?

    Try turning the driveshaft by hand with the hubs UNLOCKED.
    It sounds like there might be problems inside the diff. :-(
