sorry... Its on snow, slush and ice, its almost like the rear is trying to push the front end.. kinda like the gearing is different but the truck is all original, there is no clunking or grinding it goes in and out of 4x4 with no issues...

check the axle tags, if the rear has ls then a little of that is normal...I'd also try to see if it does it in non-auto on the hubs to rule the auto part of it out as it's a common issue on those (my work 6.0's dont work)

On dry road, virtually all 4wds do this. All of the wheels are being driven so due to the wheels needing to travel different distances around the circle you are making usually the inside rear wheel or front wheel will need to "spin out" a little bit. Due to the suspension absorbing what it can and then releasing when the wheel starts to slip you get the jerking.

Obviously it could be something else since I am not there to witness it, but what you are describing sounds normal.

A locked two wheel drive rear axle will do the same thing only it is not as noticeable.
