Just bought first Diesel

I just bought an of F250 Lariat crew 4X4 short bed with 38K on it. Everything seems to be great other than when I turn at slow speed and give it gas the truck gets a shutter that feels like the rear end is locked. Is this normal? It has the limited slip rear end but that should not eeel like a locker. Anu advice would be great.

If your sure it is coming from the rear end add a bottle of friction modifier to the gear oil. That would loosen it up if the clutches are sticking. Check to see if the front hubs are locked too. That could cause it to shudder too.

I will check that - what position should they be in? Do you have to turn them putting it into 4WD or are they automatic? Sorry - this is also my first 4WD.

Get down and look at the hub it should say auto with an arrow and a line turn to the line the way the arrow is pointing on the auto side.

Congrats on the truck purchase and welcome. Post up a picture of the new ride sometime. My guess is that your four wheel drive is engaged. Check your hubs and make sure they are in the auto position not lock.
