    Naturally it is snowing and when I put the truck (92 Bronco Electric hubs) in 4 wheel the left front wheel is grinding. It sounds like a metal on metal disk brake. Only makes this noise in 4 wheel.
    HELP, I need to plow with this thing.
    Any ideas will be appreciated.

    If you have automatic locking hubs, the hub could be bad. This usually happens when you first put it in 4wd and hit the gas kinda hard. I would spend the 150.00 on a manual hub conversion. It only takes 15 minutes to install per side and they are WAY more reliable than the auto hubs. Cheaper too.

    If you already have manual hubs it may be your wheel joint (or U-joint). Last case your manual hob could be blown.
