Ewww... you think its with the 4x4 low gearing only? Because that is basically never used. Actually, its not put in 4x4 Hi much either (even in snow)

edit- Also, I had it in 4Low when I went up the first time, and I did a bit of turning and stuff, and drove a longer distance. But both front and back were on the dirt that time.

Well, it sounded like 4hi was having some problems too if it wouldn't move at first.

Its not that it wasn't moving, its that I didn't want to throw a rod trying to get the engine on the curb, so I put it low to get more torque to the wheels.


And then coming down I don't remember if I tried 4hi when I took the parking brake off, or if I put it in 4low when I took it off.

It doesn't have hub lockers, they are always connected.

I'll look at the drive train tomorrow when I change the oil. I'll also pull it back and forward in both 4x4's. So I'll see if its in the T-case, the driveshafts, or if it was just nothing.

You shouldn't damage anything even if you hit that curb at a good 20mph... Trucks are built strong. You probably would have been fine in 2wd too actually, depending on the tires I guess.

Well I had it in 4 hi and I had the engine at like 4000 or so and it would't get up the curb.

So I figures if I put it in 4low that I'd get twice the torque, and if I had it at 4000 rpm I wouldn't have to worry about flying back into something once I got up. It worked out just like that.

I also figured th band might have been the front tires engaging in 4 low because if I remember correctly I took it out of 4low. So when I engaged it, it has to move a few inches to engage the front wheels. Wel, it didn't move until I floored it, so the bang occurred because of all the power being transfered.
