You can probably pull it into 4wd manually, climb under there and and see. Or is it something in the transfer case?

As of right now we're still wheelin Ryan. It's going to depend a lot on what the weather does and may be a last minute cancellation.

sorry to high jack the tread, but does it feel loose when you pull back on the TC lever (like its not moving anything). BTW only one wheel in the front will spin and one in the back unless you have lockers. you could also have a vacum leak like mentioned in that thread you linked me to. check the lever first thats a cheap fix. good luck

My buddy had the same problem at the cliffs. He was hung up on a stump so I had him put it back in 2wd and when he did the linkage popped out. He now runs a Novak setup. Works great!

We had a real good time. I'm not into mud unless pedal isto the floor and going in a straight line. Early in the morning it was soup, then water drained off and it turned into half way set up concrete. We had several winching excercises.

No too much damage. One guy lost a mirror to a tree, easy_goin_pa dualed with a tree and the tree won, costing him an AUX light. I need bump stops, meaning tire to fender introduction = Pushed in fender.

Few pic's.

Incoming crap load of pictures. Probably some repeats, I just went through real quick. Some of them I want to touch up because they're so washed out. Was definitely a good time, but I could go for a little less slop next time.

Here's my album. Accidentally closed the browser when it was 75% done last time *doh*!
