Rear tire slipping

When I go to make a left or right turn from a stopped position it seems like the rear tire is slipping or trying to catch when I accelerate and feels like its hopping or very rough and I have to give it extra gas to make the turn going straight you don't feel it

Do you
have the same problem?

You most likely have a locking rear differential that is not slipping sufficiently to allow free turning. Ask at the dealer's parts department if they use an additive with whale oil. If they do, that will modify the gear lube to allow the clutch plates to slip easier. Lack of that additive, when needed, can also cause chattering when turning. That additive comes in about a four or six ounce bottle.
