i am sorry for the long wait
2wd the truck is fine ?
going straight in 4WD will it do this but just not as bad as when turning ?
that is exactly what is going on
the issue is going to be dirty or low transfer case fluid causing the clutch pack to not be able to slip as it should which when will it not it will bind and cause this issue
replacing the transfer case fluid with AUTOTRAKII fluid and driven a few miles should correct this issue which is very common on these transfer caes
only synthetic equivalent to the AUTOTRAKII fluid as there are additives in the AUTOTRAKII made for treating these transfer case internal clutch disc's
if you have any questions please ask as i do not get credit for my work until you rate us here
use AUTOTRAKII fluid
yes or the equivalent at a local auto parts store they can cross over what the same fluid of AUTOTRAKII is that they sell
as long as it says its the same as AUTOTRAKII or made for transfer cases with clutches in it
they usually do not seize if they do it would do this in 2WD also as they would be locked on
ok but they do not use any dextron fluid in the transfer case on these trucks
the transfer case fluid is different called AUTOTRAKII
that is correct your truck does not but there still are clutches inside the transfer case that must have the AUTOTRAKII fluid put in it to correct this issue
if you change the fluid and it does not get better after 50 miles or so of driving then the clutches are binding inside the case and would need to be replaced but to this day i have only seen one that needed the clutches replaced for this issue most with clutch failures have an issue of not supplying power by locking out the front drive shaft from the case to the front axle

Hi there, I'm Cam. Can I give you a hand?
On your transfer case I'm not sure if Garry is thinking of the right transfer case. Yours does not use clutch pack and therefore doesn't use AutoTrak fluid. It does use dex 6. Without a clutch pack, yours uses a synchronizer much like that in a manual transmission to operate and lock in the front driveshaft. Because of that, you won't get any slip when you're turning sharp in four-wheel-drive..
Well, let's discuss this. Did you change tires? Are they all the exact same size, brand and wear?
Are you turning on dry ground?
How does it do in 4wd while going straight? Are you still interested in a phone call?
OK, posting the request. I am heading out for supper, but will be back in an hour and can call you then if that is ok.
