Rookie offroader question

Just bought a Wrangler about a month ago and didn't waste any time gettin her dirty. Only problem, or may not be a problem at all is when it's in 4x4 and I turn the wheels all the way right or left is shakes and hops, is that just because the joints aren't supposed to be turned that hard, or do I have some kind of problem?

Normal binding of the drive train. Try not to do that on the pavement.

No, just talking about in the mud. I figured it wouldn't be good for it to turn real hard in 4x4 on asphalt. Thanks for the responses though.

Depending on the traction in the mud, it may still do that. It needs to alleviate the binding so the wheels hop to spin it out. They less traction you have the less the wheel will hop to spin.
