Any ideas on what could cause this? :huh:


Can feel it as soon as 4wd gauges.
At 30+ MPH it's enough to pull to the right and off the road in a couple of seconds.

Boot's look good.
Diff fluid was changed 4 years ago to synthetic

Thanks for any help.

one of your 4wd hubs is not engaged, the other is and is causing it to pull
There are no hubs to engage and if there were the open diff would simply piss away the power...

Hmm, that's odd seeing as how nothing in the front axle engages or disengages...only in the t-case.

Got a tire that's low? Seems like that might not make a difference untill you engage 4wd.

Nope, check the tires rather often.

My fear is it's a carrier bearing, or the pillow block (Or what ever it's called)



Point if forward in 2wd, and it cost straight.
4wd and it would be in the ditch if I didn't touch the wheel.

Thanks for the info Rob454 & ColoDak

Looks like I'll be jacking up the D and cracking the cover.



I'll check the wheel bearing for the heck of it... but I've had uni-bearings go out on me before and this doesn't feel like one.
