DRIVING ON PAVEMENT IT FEELS LIKE YOU ARE IN 4WD

When the manual locking hubs are locked in and the truck is in 2wd, when you are driving on pavement it feels like you are in 4wd. Everything binds up and is tight.

Do you
have the same problem?

On dry pavement, it is not uncommon for that feeling.

Make sure the bearings are cleaned and packed with grease.

Does the feeling change when it is in 4 wheel drive?

Possibly the 4WD is locked even though you are using 2WD.
