check your outer universal joints on front axles near hub see if they are seized up and also jack up truck on axle check to see if you have bad ball joints loose or seized ball joints

The truck jumps because there is no differential action between the two axles. There is no problem. The 4x4 system on your (and most) truck is designed for use on slippery surfaces. Using it on dry pavement, where traction is good, will cause the drivetrain to bind. Normal Operation.
