I will take a closer look at the u-joints, wheel bearings today.
that means that they are automatic hubs. they are not supposed to engage till the t-case engages the front driveshaft, then they will engage. thats why you have to back up to release them...
thats why in my previous post, that i asked if the driveshaft still turns after putting the vehicle back into 4x2. the problem could actually be in the t-case, and not the hubs.
i have replaced the hubs on several, because they get stuck engaged
