Grinding noises from front end

Asked by Feb 06, 2016 at 05:58 PM about the 2004 Dodge Ram 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Put my truck in 4x4 mode, climbed an icy hill
and heard grinding noises from front end. Put it
in 2wd and can't drive at all without any
grinding noises. Doesn't make the noise in 4wd
except when I "goose" it. Any help would be
appreciated. Thank you

Sounds like it would be in the rear drive shaft, Bad u-joints or the rear end itself. When putting it in 4x4 you have pull from the front end alleviating some of the load from the rear end. Noise constant in 2 wheel drive, drive shaft u-joints or the rear end itself. Check the fluid level, if bone dry, take the cover off and have a look.
