Are you expecting all four wheels to engage when you are in 4x4. That is not always how it works. If you have limited slip or one wheel wonder as they call it, it will not engage more than one wheel per axle at a time. normal operation of a standard 4x4 is this way - if you have a posi-traction rear end or from axle it should engage both wheel on that axle

    The 4x4 doesn't stay on when turned on all the time. It'll fluctuate on and off. The lite on the dash is on when turned to 4x4

    So i put the hubs on lock and turn the dial to turn on 4x4 but when I start using the 4x4 it doesn't sound like it clicks in all the way but it's trying to so it just ends up making a lot of noise.
