Front passenger tire not spinning when in the mud?

Alot of my buddies told me that my front passenger tire was not spinning when I was stuck. IDK if the hub locks or not, but I had it locked. So is this a hub problem or what could it be if its not?

I'm just going to take it into ford and have them do it under warranty, but what do ya'll think it is?

Front end does not have a locker. Unless you put one in. It is an open differential. If the tire was stuck bad enough. Then all the power was going to the other front tire.

It's an open differential. If there's a big difference in resistance between one side and the other, all the power is going to the side with least resistance. Put some sort of traction aid in the front dif, or live with it.
