Hey Guys after doing a Rear Diff/Transfer case/Front Diff Swap and adding my 3" body lift i took her for a spin 2wd works great and when transfer case in 4 and 4lo all is good but when it's in 4 and the hubs are locked i get this wired rubbing noise from the front end and when i turn my a few of my tires lock up and this is at a crawl pace but when getting it up to speed the noise that i hearing i think might be whats making my tires lock but the engine is just pulling past it cause it kinda jerks hard just wondering what you all Ranger Genius's think it might me.... me and my father both are kinda leaning towards my hubs being put back on wrong... cause the diff's we got were in good shape thanks
Spencer

Are you doing this on a hard surface? Both axles are the same ratio, correct?

try this off road the asphalt has too much traction and it is binding up your front axle. when your turning your outside tire has to travel further than the inside tire you have them locked togather by the axle so they are trying their best to travel at the same speed but they shouldnt


ps if you keep doing that you could bust your front end or transfer case
