Four Wheel Drive?

I have a question... my four wheel drive works but the right hub is hard to lock in. I can't turn it with my hands, I have to get pliers to turn it in the lock position. The left one I can turn with my hands, but the right one is almost impossible to turn. Does anybody know how I can fix my right hub to make it easier to turn? Does anybody know what's causing this?

That happened to mine but it got so bad you couldn't turn it at all. You might be able to lubricate it but I would just upgrade to some Warn hubs. I got the Warn hubs and they are ten times better than the stock ones.

So you think mine will eventually get that bad? I wonder is I could just lock them in once a week if it'd loosen it up any? That's probably what I'll end up doin' is just gettin' new hubs.

I don't know if they will get any worse but the probably won't get any better. I know with my Warn hubs they recommend to lock them and drive a mile or so once a month.

you can tear them down, clean them and grease them up... have had to do it in the past... most likely they got water or dirt in them and it binded everything up.
