    I have a 1999 250 Gas super duty with a 7 foot Arctic plow. I have the manual wheel locks for the 4x4 and the manual stick on the floor in the cab. when i crank the wheels with the 4x4 engaged the wheels jerk and are extremely hard to turn. I think it might be my U-Joints, but I am not sure. Any suggestions? Thanks In advance,

    It'll do that on dry pavement.

    4x4 and tight turns on dry pavement and it will do that.

    Yeah, unfortunatly it also performs that way on wet grass and snow as well. Would it make a difference that the 4x4 hasn't been used since feb 2009? Thanks again?
