popping noise in 4 wheel drive

I have a 93 Jeep wrangler. When I put it in 4 wheel drive and started going it started making popping noises. The more I turn the more it pops.

How about giving us some more info on your Jeep. Engine, trans, amount of lift, tire size, etc. The more info we get the better we can help.

You should NOT be in 4wd on pavement. One wheel MUST slip/skid when you turn a corner, and the tire grip on pavement means other parts get stressed a LOT.
