Hello everyone,

I'm new to this site, but an avid do-it-yourselfer like most of you. I've had my Ranger for about six years now and here recently (last winter and this winter) I've noticed some problems with my 4WD:

1) The auto-locking hubs never unlock permanently. They disengage for awhile and then lock back in randomly when I turn. I ordered manual hubs to replace them and plan to do so as soon as they arrive. Any particular advice other than the obvious instructions?

2) This winter I've noticed that the transfer case is awfully noisy. When I'm in 4hi, it whines very loudly when the truck is in motion. What can I do to investigate or solve this?

Any help is greatly appreciated.
