4x4 Question

Long story short...Wife drove truck off road while I was working, broke truck, she had it towed to house. I replaced tranny. When I put the tranny in and first drove it, the hubs were clicking. I took them out, cleaned and repacked. The noise went away.

With son driving and me watching and listening..........

4x4 not working, shifts in fine, and front drive shaft turns. Front axels turn whether hubs are locked or not. (manualy) With hubs locked in manually and in 4x4, front driveshaft turning and front axels turning but no 4x4.

What gives???

Pull the rear driveshaft out to be sure then test it.

A simple check will be to jack up the front end, tcase in 2wd. Manually lock the hubs, spin a tire. If everything is working as it should be, the tires will rotate counter to each other. If not, slide up underneath and spin the driveshaft. Whichever tire doesn't move likely has a blown hub.
