dont turn so sharply and you wont have that problem.. or.. turn as sharp has you want and replace U-joints and axles often.. it's your choice..

You have 4 wheels trying to move forward at the same time instead of 2. Also keep in mine that these are your turning wheels too. The only vehicles that wont do this are AWD systems that are designed for full time 4WD.

Ok, if your jeep is in 4x4, it is trying to drive BOTH front wheels straight ahead. If you remember, a diffential is supposed to let one wheel move farther, and faster than the other when going around a corner. BUT in 4x4 the diffs work against each other, in that they drive both wheel straight. If you are trying to use 4x4 on hard pavement, or even hard dirt, you are going to rip out some hardware! Even the little bit of slip you get in dirt is enough to let the tires slip and not get bound up. DO NOT USE 4x4 ON PAVEMENT!!! It WILL break your front end or spider gears!
